As in "Python." As in "Run away! Run away!"
Four Canadian border crossings were shut down Sunday as about 60 of Canada's unarmed border guards walked off the job after they were warned that a person classified as "armed and dangerous" may be headed into Canada.
The walkouts—permitted when the guards perceive threats to their personal safety—began mid-afternoon and stalled northbound border traffic for hours.
Can this possibly be true, that guards are allowed to leave their posts if they hear about "threats"?
