Clinton begins talks about Canadian road-dike

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has begun talks with the Canadian government about the road that serves as a dike on the U.S.-Canada border, according to a press release issued Thursday by the office of Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has begun talks with the Canadian government about the road that serves as a dike on the U.S.-Canada border, according to a press release issued Thursday by the office of Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.

Dorgan said he believes the dike on the northeastern border clearly violates the Boundary Waters Treaty. The Canadians call the structure a road, but it's closed to vehicle traffic, Dorgan said.

"It simply isn't fair for us to allow this practice to continue," Dorgan said. "I am pleased Secretary of State Clinton has begun that process. I know this won't be solved overnight, but we need to address this issue."
