Approval for a reality show production crew to film an immigration raid at a Vancouver construction site came directly from the federal government, documents obtained by a Vancouver woman show.
Helesia Luke, who has a background in television production and now works with non-profits in Vancouver, was troubled by news of the immigration raid being filmed on Wednesday, so she asked the federal government for the production agreement.
The document, which she received within hours, outlines Force Four Entertainment’s desire to enter into discussions with the Canadian Border Services Agency to produce a series on border security in Canada.
The document was prepared for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews and it bears his signature and approval.
It also says someone from the Prime Minister’s Office viewed a demo reel provided by Force Four Entertainment, as well as members of Toews’ staff and CBSA senior managers and legal services.
