Although daredevil Nik Wallenda unrolled his plans for a possible highwire walk above Niagara Falls on Wednesday, he said he still needs meet with Canadian officials to get permission to perform the stunt.

The New York State Legislature has already passed a bill that will allow Wallenda to tightrope walk nearly 200 feet above the falls and gorge.

That bill could be on the desk of Gov. Andrew Cuomo within 10 days for final approval. But Wallenda admitted on Wednesday he's still got some work to do.

Sources have reported that Canadian authorities have said the stunt might be out of the question.
