    Trump looking to put troops near Canadian border amid coronavirus fears

    If the plans come to fruition, Global News has learned troops would be stationed about 30 kilometres from the border between official points of entry and would use sensor technology to detect irregular crossers before passing on the information to border patrol agents.

    President Trump responded to a question about his proposal during the daily COVID-19 task force briefing. “We have very strong deployments on the southern border, as you know, Mexico, and we have some troops up in Canada, but I’ll find out about that,” he said. “I guess it’s equal justice to a certain extent, but in Canada, we do have troops along the border.”
