Kerry's one good idea

Not that he'll follow through...

Kerry would close U.S. border to Canadian trash

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said today he would immediately ban Canadian trash shipments into Michigan if he wins the Nov. 2 election.

"It's time to end Canadian trash dumping in Michigan," Kerry said in a news release.

"(President) George W. Bush has let Michigan become Canada's landfill."

Kerry said he wouldn't allow further shipments until the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency begins enforcing a 1992 treaty that requires Canada to notify the EPA for each shipment of waste entering the United States. The treaty allows the EPA to reject shipments for health or environmental reasons.

We take enough garbage from Canada as it is.
