Just after noon today, the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, spoke at a gathering in Lake Placid.
He praised the effort of Federal prosecutors and other public officials along the US-Canada border and said enormous strides had been made in “protecting the safety of our fellow citizens.”
Attorney General Holder also praised what he called the “special relationship” between Washington and Ottawa.
“The bond between the United States and Canada is stronger than ever,” he said. “Time and again our nations have proven their ability to work together to resolve complex and sensitive bilateral law enforcement issues.”
During his comments, Holder also insisted that civil liberties, privacy, and open trade remain priorities. More from AG Holder tonight tomorrow All Before Five and again tomorrow morning on NCPR.
