In a few years all border walls might be obsolate because it's easy for everybody who wants to fly over them.

US - Canada border is unguarded. If you avoid roads, you can just walk over it, no hoverbike necessary. And yet, it doesn't strike me as "obsolete".

I used to think that the US-Canada border doesn't have much effects in terms of goods or people flowing through it. Do you think the reality is different.
