Canada will be included in the deal only if the US will get some kind of compensation for the years of abuse, by the words of the American president.

Misconduct of the border officers
Around 95 millions of the tourists visited Canada this year. Till this day, more than 100 complaints were directed to The Canada Border Service Agency. The complaints were against the border officers and their misbehavior. Besides the yelling or arrogant attitude towards the travelers, the officers used race as a reason for misconduct.
Canada still doesn’t have a special complaints organ, which should be established in some time in the future. The current situation is not well-appointed for the tourists, as many of the allegations were marked as unfounded.
However, this doesn’t mean that the CBSA ignored the complaints. They took some measures against the officers who were mistreating the travelers.
Most common complaints are about yelling, screwing, abusive, racist behavior of the border officers.
It is important to know that a translator should be available in all cases that the communication with the officer can’t be maintained, due to speaking different languages. The language barrier can’t be in any case a reason for misconduct of the border officer.
