Being in Canada and traveling to the US on occasion I was suprised the
first time I went and found that non-passengers could get to the gate
by just passing through security the same as passengers.

Yet in Canada, only passengers with valid tickets/boarding passes can get
through security, which seems a lot more sane to me at least.
