Janet Napolitano is planning to make her first visit to Canada as U.S. homeland security secretary next week despite concerns over her understanding of border security issues, the Vancouver Sun reported. Last month, the U.S cabinet member responsible for the border caused a minor uproar in Canada when she suggested that some of the 9/11 hijackers entered the U.S. via its northern neighbour. While the dates of her visit have not been finalized, it is expected she will finalize a deal that allows joint armed patrols of shared waterways by the RCMP and the U.S. Coast Guard.
