    The number of refugees crossing into Canada from the United States has soared since late last year.

    Many say they are fleeing a climate of fear in the US. While there is no official tally, it is thought close to a thousand people may have crossed the border in remote areas looking for asylum.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports from the Canada-US frontier, south of Montreal.
