The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has
intensified in the past week, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop
the illegal immigration.
The actions of President Bush are prompting the exodus among
left-leaning citizens who fear they'll soon be required to hunt, pray,

Canadian border farmers say it's not uncommon to see dozens of
sociology professors, animal- rights activists and Unitarians crossing
