Life on the Canada/US Border

  • Published 5 months ago

The Canada – US border, officially known as the International Boundary, is the longest international border between two countries. More than 8,800 km long, the border occupies the parts of Alaska, British Columbia, and Yukon.

Prior to 9/11, crossing the border was relatively easy. But after the 9/11 attacks, life changed. And even more for the people living on the border.

This documentary takes a look at the unexpected cultural, social, economic, and political fallout following the 9/11 attacks. It also explores the growing concern that border security and the invasion of privacy has gone too far.

There are more than 100 legal land border crossings between the two countries. Of them, 26 take place at a bridge or tunnel. Only two are one way-crossings.
