The bridges crossing into Canada are a familiar part of life in Western New York. Move east beyond this region and that international border becomes more complex. Reporter Tim O'Shei and photographer Derek Gee of the Buffalo News spent weeks exploring that border. Their research received a boost from the access granted by Aaron Bowker, Public Affairs Liaison for U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Buffalo field office. They stopped by the WBFO studios recently to discuss their findings and the ongoing series of articles appearing in the Buffalo News.
