Should Canadian border authorities be participating in a reality TV program?

This week, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers in Vancouver carried out a number of raids targeting undocumented workers on construction work sites. On at least one of the raids CBSA officers were accompanied by a film crew for the reality TV show 'Border Security: Canada's Front Line'.

This has resulted in protest and calls for the cancellation of the reality TV program, which airs on the National Geographic Channel and is being produced by Vancouver-based Force Four Productions.

A CBSA spokesperson defended the agency's participation with the reality TV program, stating: "The show follows the regular day-to-day duties of CBSA employees, including at the land border, airports, mail centres and inland... While a film crew was present at yesterday's enforcement action, our officers do this on a daily basis in the absence of cameras."

We want to know what you think.
