The TV show ‘Border Security: Canada’s Front Line’ will not be returning for a fifth season. The show pulled in some very strong ratings during its four-year run, but the show ran into problems.
An incident involving a construction worker who was filmed during a raid in Vancouver put the show in some hot water. Canada’s Federal Privacy Commissioner found the agency violated the rights of the worker, breaching the privacy act. The commissioner’s findings states, “As a matter of principle, it is our view that federal government institutions cannot contract out of their obligations under the act.”
The show filmed the daily lives of CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) workers in the first three seasons and U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in the fourth season.
