Canada-U.S. border changes being mulled-over

The Obama administration may be a lame duck but it has introduced a bill to simplify border crossings in the U-S Congress.

Both the Harper and Trudeau governments have signed preclearance deals with the Obama administration, but it requires changes to the law and American lawmakers have not made it a priority.

The plan would see travellers headed south to pre-clear customs long before they get to the border.
