French jogger who crossed B.C.-U.S. border accidentally a warning to Canadians: expert

A French teenager who accidentally crossed the border from Canada to the United States and reportedly wound up detained for two weeks should serve as a warning to Canadians, says an immigration lawyer.

Len Saunders, a lawyer in Blaine, Wash., said while aspects of the case are unique, it should still be considered a reminder to Canadians who walk their dogs or go jogging along the border.

“It’s a warning for Canadians to be careful if they’re close to the border, not to go too far south, because this could happen to a Canadian,” he said.
