Complaints pile up over airport border guardsReports show pattern of rude, disrespectful treatment of travellers by CBSA agents
"Dozens of travellers arriving home at Ottawa International Airport have filed complaints about rude treatment and harassment by Canada Border Services Agency officers, including one who allegedly asked a young woman if she was menstruating.
Many of the complaints share a consistent theme: the aggressive tone of border officers who greet them when they return home. "I have travelled the world and I never had a more unwelcoming, intimidating and nasty experience," wrote one complainant of his arrival in Ottawa.
Another complained that business colleagues arriving in Ottawa were "shocked and appalled at the rude and eventually hostile reception from Canada Border Services agents." Others reported feeling "intimidated and harassed," "demeaned" or being treated in a "highly rude and disrespectful manner."
