Well, well, well...

This is very interesting...

Border agents arrested a Canadian truck driver Monday after finding nine illegal immigrants from China hiding in the back of his tractor-trailer.
"It was another one of those cases where the officer got suspicious while asking the driver routine questions," Ronald Smith, spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said Monday. "Agents became suspicious because the driver was acting nervous."
The illegal immigrants -- six women and three men -- were in excellent physical condition.
The driver, 39, of Windsor was delivering a load of steel to Gary, Ind., and crossed into Detroit at the Ambassador Bridge. Agents discovered the illegal immigrants hiding in the trailer after the driver was told to open the doors. Border officials did not name the driver.
The driver was detained pending federal criminal charges.
The illegal immigrants were detained, pending debriefing as potential witnesses and deportation to Canada.

China, huh? Paul Martin's favourite country, outside of his own (I think).
Should I be suspicious?
