TRURO, N.S. x–24s. The union representing workers at the Canada Border Services Agency says a possible strike could affect Canada’s borders this summer. The Public Service Alliance of Canada says nine-thousand of its members who work for the C-B-S-A have secured a strike mandate. The union says workers will be in a legal strike position in June, which is also when mediation sessions are scheduled to begin. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the government will continue to negotiate.
