ARE AMERICANS worried about the wrong border? Almost every day, there are news stories regarding the porous border between the United States and Mexico and the flood of illegal immigrants into our country. But an incident last month indicates we should be more concerned about the Canadian border. In early June, Canadian police arrested 17 Muslim suspects in Toronto, alleging that there was a plot to bomb buildings in Canada, including Parliament in Ottawa and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

Rick Nash scored the go-ahead goal to put Canada in the title game of the World Ice Hockey Championships with a 5-4 win over Sweden in Quebec City last night, setting up a championship showdown with Russia tomorrow. Sergei Fedorov scored the opening goal of the game and Evgeni Nabakov stopped 23 shots to lead Russia to a 4-0 win over Finland in the first game of the semifinal doubleheader. It will be the first time Canada and Russia have ever met with the world championship on the line.

Some politicians are promising they can deliver cheap drugs for Americans by copying the Canadian system. Beware - the silly season lasts until Nov. 7. The claim that pharmaceuticals are hugely cheaper in Canada is just plain wrong. Many drugs are much more expensive in Canada and generic prices are consistently higher. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development reports that prices for brand-name drugs are overall 23 percent lower in Canada. However, individual incomes of Canadians are 24 percent lower and the standard of living is lower.

Canada was famous for 15 minutes. There has to be something wrong with that. When Andy Warhol said that some day everyone will be famous for 15 minutes, he was talking about people, not entire countries. Canada is, by land mass, the second largest country in the world. That should be good for at least half an hour. Canada got famous for 15 minutes during its national parliamentary elections, mainly because the issue in the elections was whether to sign a free trade agreement with the United States, a country that is permanently famous to the point of distraction.

Last month, Assistant District Attorney Joel Goldstein made a promise to the Delaware County jury that convicted Victor Maturo of first-degree murder and sentenced him to life in prison. The South Philadelphia man had been accused of plotting with Thomas S. Vile to murder Vile's former girlfriend. "One day Vile will be caught, and I will go before a jury like this and ask that he be found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to death," Goldstein said. Last week, Goldstein came closer to fulfilling his promise when an administrative judge in Toronto ordered that Vile be deported from Canada.

THE U.S. MEN'S HOCKEY team saw stars on the red, white and blue flags waved by fans during yesterday's gold-medal game against Canada. The Canadians saw stars, too. Cheering from the stands. Topping the list was Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who showed up to witness his country's overtime win over the U.S. He even won a case of beer thanks to a bet he made with President Obama. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Obama wagered a case of Yuengling that the U.S. would win. Harper put up a case of Molson.

This one was supposed to be a laugher, a sure ticket to the semifinals as a reward for the Canadian men's hockey team winning its round-robin group. And when Joe Nieuwendyk and Shayne Corson scored within the first 2 minutes, 13 seconds of Canada's quarterfinal game against Kazakstan yesterday at Big Hat, that notion was only reinforced. But when Kazakstan forward Konstantin Shafranov blasted a shot off the arm of goaltender Patrick Roy to cut Canada's lead to 2-1 at 3:46 of the first period, the Canadians suddenly and unexpectedly found themselves in a tight game.

Florida Panthers defenseman Jay Bouwmeester scored the winning goal, and Canada rallied to beat Sweden for the second straight year in the gold-medal game at the world hockey championships, 5-3, yesterday in Prague, Czech Republic. Canada has won the world title a record 23 times, tying the Soviet Union-Russia. The United States won the bronze medal earlier yesterday with a 1-0 victory in a shootout over Slovakia. It was the first medal at the worlds for the Americans since they finished third in 1996.

The Flyers' Eric Lindros had a goal and an assist to help Canada defeat Russia yesterday, 3-1, in Dortmund, Germany, and complete the preliminary round of the World Hockey Championships with a 5-0 record.

Also yesterday, Germany scored five times in the first period and held on to beat Team USA, 6-3. Paul Kariya, of the University of Maine, who was voted the top U.S. college player this year, had one goal and one assist.

On a recent Saturday afternoon at the Joe Louis Arena, the Canadian Olympic team was adding the final touches to a 5-1 defeat of the U.S. team in a practice game. Because of the proximity of "The Joe" to Canada, plenty of Canadians were in attendance and showing their approval. Many of them had come for their first chance to see a 19-year-old goalie named Sean Burke. They got an eyeful. They had read the news from Moscow about Burke, who led the Canadian team to a first-place finish at the Izvestia tournament in December, defeating the powerful Soviets along the way. After each save Burke made in Detroit, many of the Canadian fans would glance approvingly at one another, perhaps even poke a friend in the ribs, and smile.

IT IS the dream of 99.9 percent of the football-playing kids in America to one day play in the NFL. It certainly was Aaron Grymes' dream three years ago, but it didn't quite work out. Grymes, an all-conference cornerback at the University of Idaho, went unclaimed in the 2013 draft. No one signed him after the draft, either. The Green Bay Packers invited him to their rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, but he didn't stick. With his wife Hannah three months pregnant, Grymes needed a job. His position coach at Idaho, Torey Hunter, had played in the Canadian Football League and asked him if he might be interested in going up there.

The NBA draft could be set up for a needed revamping of the eligibility requirements if five-star basketball recruit Thon Maker follows through on his reported intent to declare for the 2016 draft and is allowed to enter. On Sunday, Bleacher Report columnist Adam Wells reported that Maker, a 7-1 center who plays at Orangeville District Secondary School in Ontario, Canada, will forgo college to go directly into the NBA if the league approves it. Under the current collective bargaining agreements, players applying for the draft must be 19 by the time of the draft and one year removed from their class graduating high school.

YO, THIS presidential jawn got you thinking of moving to Canada, eh? Join the club. "How to Move to Canada" was the most-searched phrase after Donald Trump's victory on Super Tuesday, March 1. I've never been one to run away from ignorant loudmouths, but I happened to be in Canada when America lost its collective mind, and maybe it was the thin air of the Canadian Rockies, but I started trying "Canuck Helen" on for size. I had been in Alberta for just a few days, and bonded with an adorable sled dog named Apache and a Dudley-Do-Right-looking Canadian Mountie.

THE VILLAGE of Warburg, Alberta, is home to 789 people, according to Canadian census data from 2011. Just under 400 of them are men. What are the odds, then, that two boys from that town grow up and one day coach against each other in the National Hockey League? The math would show that it's, well . . . pretty improbable, all things considered. "It's a coaching hotbed, Warburg," Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff said with a laugh after Tuesday's morning skate at Wells Fargo Center.

Tight end Zach Ertz is heading for Edmonton. The one in Alberta. Former home of Wayne Gretzky. Gateway to the North. Home of the West Edmonton Mall. Edmonton also is the site of Monday's next World Cup match for the U.S. women's team, which features Ertz' girlfriend, Julie Johnston. Johnston is a 23-year-old defender who captained the U.S. Under-20 team to the 2012 World Cup title.

ISSUE | EXTREMISTS Barbarians at gate Bravo to Trudy Rubin for urging that the world come together to confront extremist views ("The world must now confront Salafi teachings," Jan. 11). It is nearly 70 years since the end of World War II and the end of the totalitarian regimes in Germany and Japan. Millions died before the world was able to thwart these regimes' desire for world domination. The barbarians are once more at the gate, and civilization must find a way to stop them or suffer the consequences of more and more attacks.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Sam Morin called it the most annoying injury of his young career. He has been cut, bruised and battered - but this one was different. Not only did it keep him out of his junior team's lineup, but many wondered whether his fractured jaw would keep the 19-year-old defenseman off Canada's prestigious World Junior Championship roster. Morin was injured when he was hit with a slap shot Oct. 12 while playing for his junior team, Rimouski. Subsequent surgery wired his mouth shut.

Emphasizing the importance of the relationship between the United States and Canada, Gov. Christie called again for completion of the Keystone XL pipeline during a speech Thursday in Calgary, Alberta. Christie previously criticized the delay of the pipeline extension - which would carry petroleum from Alberta to refineries in the Gulf Coast - in a September speech in Mexico. On Thursday, the first day of a two-day trade mission to Canada, Christie reiterated his stance on the extension, framing it as a key step to boosting ties between the U.S. and Canada.

Gov. Christie on Thursday will travel to Canada, where he is expected to discuss energy policy, a topic that could become part of a 2016 presidential platform. The trade mission, which begins Thursday in Calgary, Alberta, and ends Friday with stops in Ottawa and Toronto, Ontario, marks Christie's second foreign trip in three months as he considers a run for president. He led a New Jersey delegation to Mexico in September, where he also talked energy, an issue with foreign and domestic dimensions.
