Republican candidate for president wants to put up a wall at Canada-U.S. border

By Haydn Watters, CBC News

Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin a Republican contender for the president’s job, has been ridiculed online since raising the idea of building a mammoth security wall along the Canada-U.S. border.

Walker entertained the idea during an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, where he called the wall a “legitimate issue.”

It’s rare to see the Canadian border being discussed during a presidential campaign, as candidates more often talk about the southern border. Walker’s fellow presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has called for a “real wall” to be put up between the U.S. and Mexico. And he plans to get the Mexican government to pay for it.

The possibility of a Canadian wall, on the other hand, got a whole lot of laughs online.
