Inland enforcement mainly goes after people who have immigration violations...

I did notice the one's jacket said "IMMIGRATION" on the back... I thought immigration and customs no longer existed?

Every day, tens of thousands of people arrive at Canada’s border crossings. Most are legitimate travellers, but not all of them. From Canadian citizens with undeclared food to international drug smugglers; from confused visitors to phony immigrants; from impaired drivers to wanted felons.

But only if CBSA management acknowledges the threat of said felon. After all, an armed and dangerous alert from Police isn't always reliable in their eyes.

Is this show going to show a management meeting so that Canadians see just how retarded and incompetent these a**holes really are? Or how about they show my managers when they try to tell me IRPA is not part of my job!

On another note I would sell any footage of GTA Postal to Jenny Craig or Goodlife for their "tone down your ass" fitness campaign.

Meh, we shall see. From what I watch (in the preview) the reactions of the people just didn't seem authentic, I could very well be wrong.

Sure it is.......did you see the tackle in the clip?
It's the CBSA...no Officer could do that and still remain employed.

This made me laugh out loud - I am glad to see that at least the CBSA sense of humour remains alive and well, even if management is acting like they are dying a slow brain death. Thanks for making my day.

Just saw this:

680 News wrote:Report finds more than 1,000 complaints against Canada border agency during 6-month period

It seems many people crossing into Canada are not happy with their experience at the border.

A report obtained by the Canadian Press found there were 1,105 complaints against the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) during a six-month period last year.

The complaints range from overly-long interrogation periods to rude behaviour on the part of border officers.

In one case, an individual with the same name as a person with crime ties was accused of being that person.

While the numbers seem high, the agency says they make up a very small percentage of the total number of travellers.

In many of the reports the agency found the border agent followed correct protocol but there was still an unnecessary wait or delay for the traveller.

Canada Border Services Agency, which has 5,500 uniformed officers, processed more than 90 million travellers in 2011 and the complaints total only a tiny fraction of the total

The agency also says it had 217 compliments through the feedback system in 2011.

So - over 6 months you process some 45 million travellers and ONLY 1,105 complaints filed across the whole of CBSA? Good job!

Actually if you are getting complaints you aren't "client service" oriented enough.
