Canadian Montys


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"?
