Over the past month 22,000 people have signed a petition to National Geographic Channel, Shaw Media, and Force Four Entertainment to cancel the TV show Border Security. This TV show spurred public outrage when it was revealed that, embedded with Canadian Border Services Agency agents, TV crews filmed a workplace immigration raid and migrant detentions.
Migrant justice groups along with Amnesty International, B.C. Civil Liberties Association, LeadNow, and the Council of Canadians have all spoken out against this TV show and the support it is receiving from the federal government.
Now, the campaign to cancel Border Security has received the support of prominent actors and cultural producers.
