    Ridiculous.

  2. Angel Earth on July 16, 2023 at 5:05 pm

    Trust me drug are very powerful in the whole wall

    1:39 as a Canadian I travel to the US alot and so do my friends, so actually alot of Canadians like to travel to the US. Stop spreading the narrative that we have to hate the US. I love Canada but we must acknowledge that the us is very similar. And that fence is absolutely pathetic.

  4. Kevin Naderi on July 16, 2023 at 5:06 pm

    It looks short enough that people can step over it

  5. Suckmy Longleg on July 16, 2023 at 5:08 pm

    “Helps reduce illegal crossing” from who 3 year olds??

  6. David Lally on July 16, 2023 at 5:08 pm

    Mm greetings from the Ireland/ Northern Ireland border..we just walk from one area into the other. No customs or passports etc etc.. tho the postboxes change colour (red or green), one uses miles, the other Km and of course one uses the Euro and the other, the UK£…

  7. Brianboru88 on July 16, 2023 at 5:08 pm

    Only the Americans would be that petty..

  8. BRONSONTJ on July 16, 2023 at 5:08 pm

    🤣😂🤣😂

  9. Mike Oxlong on July 16, 2023 at 5:10 pm

    Mexicans climbing 20 foot walls to get in. Meanwhile Canadians are too polite to crawl over this dinky little rope.

  10. R. morris on July 16, 2023 at 5:11 pm

    only a military weapon going off stops illegal crossings.

  11. Aaron Lane on July 16, 2023 at 5:13 pm

    Meanwhile the border fence with Mexico is a freaking prison fence.

  12. PsychoLogicalSigma on July 16, 2023 at 5:14 pm

    We need one at Mexico border

  13. Chesapeake Coaching of Oyster Point Psychological, LLC on July 16, 2023 at 5:15 pm

    Comparing this fence to the Berlin Wall is silly beyond words. Travel from East Berlin to West Berlin was not permitted, and you could be killed for attempting to do so. Travel between Canada and the United States is routine, and one does not risk getting shot for traveling between these two countries. If this man is a government worker, he lacks the intelligence that his job requires.

  14. Bonnie S on July 16, 2023 at 5:17 pm

    How about the Mexico boarder!!!!!!

  15. Eggie The Roll on July 16, 2023 at 5:18 pm

    1:37-2:00 Nailed it

  16. Nathan on July 16, 2023 at 5:19 pm

    2:01 Ronda Rousey?

  17. Marcus Henness on July 16, 2023 at 5:20 pm

    That fence is easily hoppable.

  18. MisterLove on July 16, 2023 at 5:21 pm

    I didn’t have to guess that this was the idea of the US

  19. Nicolas Martin on July 16, 2023 at 5:21 pm

    The drug war has destroyed freedom in American.

  20. deusex machine on July 16, 2023 at 5:22 pm

    the only thing is left to build rest of the wall along side Canada border since there are more illegal migrant and drug smuglling on Usa -Canada northern border

  21. Don Ismyname on July 16, 2023 at 5:23 pm

    We need a Trump wall to keep the latinos out, as they find way to sneak in.

  22. walnut logs on July 16, 2023 at 5:24 pm

    Looks like Mexico paid for this fence lol

  23. Eric Eller on July 16, 2023 at 5:25 pm

    Won’t build down south where we need it 🤔

  24. G. Peters on July 16, 2023 at 5:26 pm

    Security? How is it possible to live with open borders in Europe?

  25. Jamatr0n on July 16, 2023 at 5:26 pm

    Water slides have better security fences than that 😂

  26. Michael Huffman on July 16, 2023 at 5:28 pm

    You can tell this is up north, real thick Yankee accent you don’t hear where I’m from

  27. charliecmo on July 16, 2023 at 5:30 pm

    I’m just glad that no illegal will be able to cross that wall.

  28. Michael McFerrin on July 16, 2023 at 5:31 pm

    That should keep illegals from the States out……LOL!

  29. J Martin on July 16, 2023 at 5:35 pm

    Funny put up a fence on northern border and take it down on the southern border. Go figure 😂

  30. Peter O'Toole on July 16, 2023 at 5:35 pm

    IF thinking that fence will deter smuggling then officials are dumber than we thought

  31. MatthewLM on July 16, 2023 at 5:38 pm

    Wow that’s going to stop criminals in their tracks.

  32. doomer on July 16, 2023 at 5:41 pm

    bro that has to be one of the fences ever

  33. Jerry B Nasty on July 16, 2023 at 5:41 pm

    Won’t work! Mexicans can jump fences

  34. MARK Uchiha on July 16, 2023 at 5:45 pm

    LOL 🤣😂🤣😂😂

  35. Bruce Lee on July 16, 2023 at 5:46 pm

    They’re letting the Maple Syrup bootleggers know they mean business, my four year old daughter said don’t worry dad that fence ain’t no problem for me .

  36. Cdog inth'house on July 16, 2023 at 5:46 pm

    That fence isn’t gonna stop anybody on "foot".

  37. heat wave2243 on July 16, 2023 at 5:47 pm

    wow…. yay lets divide community’s because of politics yayaaaaaaaeeeeeeeee

  38. Ace Dynamo on July 16, 2023 at 5:47 pm

    Lol, what is the point? that’s just wasted money, that little rope barrier isn’t going to prevent anaything.

  39. Keith Rose on July 16, 2023 at 5:50 pm

    Just think about the farms that have land on both sides.

  40. Cece on July 16, 2023 at 5:51 pm

    As if I want to go over to the US NOT!

  41. Bill Hawkes on July 16, 2023 at 5:54 pm

    That’s a joke right?

  42. N Sha on July 16, 2023 at 5:55 pm

    That’s terrible and heartbreaking 😢

  43. Coverage Awareness Studio on July 16, 2023 at 5:55 pm

    That guy is right… it’s like the Berlin wall and it’s meant to keep US Citizens in. The same thing that goes with Mexico/US, they say it’s about keeping out the Mexicans but it’s really meant to keep the people in.

  44. SimpleOne2 on July 16, 2023 at 5:56 pm

    Smuggling? From Canada? We should accept anything Canada brings over. I love Canada

  45. ArThor on July 16, 2023 at 5:58 pm

    I thought US and Canada were friendly countries – why a fence ? 🤔 Pure waste of money… Greetings from the (open) German/Dutch border. 💫

  46. Charles on July 16, 2023 at 5:59 pm

    The Berlin wall also had razor wire, guard towers, and land mines, and dogs.

  47. zero on July 16, 2023 at 6:00 pm

    tear down that fence!

  48. Bk H on July 16, 2023 at 6:00 pm

    Why would they even waste money on it.who freaking cares about a damn border.
    If i want to drive to mexico or canada with no fuss i should be able to.who cares.our problems are in office not the darn border.
    They want drugs and crime here its good for jobs and stock market.just think all the lighters sold bc of meth epidemic and lighter fluid and foil and fuel burned in cars and drug rehabs and courts.i could go on and on.
    Order by chaos

  49. Dale Moore on July 16, 2023 at 6:01 pm

    Bawhahahahahaha.

  50. jojorobino5312 on July 16, 2023 at 6:01 pm

    That fence looks like a few guns could pass through quite easily.
