Border Wait Times in Windsor May Increase Due to Redeployment of CBSA Officers 2018-05-22

A government request asking border officers to consider relocating to Quebec for the summer to help with an expected influx of asylum seekers from the U.S. has officials here worried there could be delays at the border.
 
“Definitely it concerns us,” said Stan Korosec, who oversees operations for the bridge company on the Canadian side.
 
“They often have troubling staffing the lanes now. We are hoping they don’t take any personnel from our crossing here.”
 
The Canada and Border Services Agency has issued a request for volunteers across the country to relocate to Quebec for a minimum of one month this summer to help out processing asylum seekers whose numbers are anticipated to skyrocket starting in June. Up to 400 per day are expected to arrive at Canada’s borders once school is out in the U.S.
 
CBSA spokeswoman Patrizia Giolti told The Globe and Mail there should not be any added delays at land crossings due to the reassignment this summer of border officers.
