  Shooting At Border Makes Mounties Run Away
A high-speed chase ended in gunfire and a major U.S.-Canadian border crossing was closed for hours after one of two men sought in a California homicide was shot and wounded.

An unspecified number of Canadian border agents, who are unarmed, left their posts because they were concerned for their safety, but managers eventually took over and maintained security, said Paula Shore, a spokeswoman for the Canada Border Services Agency.

The Canada border agency spokeswoman would not specify how many Canadian border agents left their posts or for how long but said fewer than four of the more than 20 border crossings in British Columbia were affected.

"A few officers exercised their right to refuse to work because of what they perceived as imminent danger," Shore said in a telephone interview. Under the Canada labor code, "any worker has the right to refuse to work if they feel they are in imminent danger."
