Combat invasion of privacy at US/Canada border crossings. Say “NO” to this “COPS”-style cable tv program placing you on camera without your permission!
I definitely saw this notice posted at the border crossing last time I took the bus from Seattle to Vancouver:
“Please be advised that BST Media 2 Inc. is filming scenes and background material in this area, for use in a television documentary series about border security and the Canada Border Services Agency. You will not be identifiable in the series without your permission. If you are in the background while others are being filmed, or if you do not agree to be identifiable in the series, your image will be altered so you are not recognizable. If you see the crew filming in your area and do not wish to be filmed, please notify a crew member and we will accommodate you. If you don’t see a camera crew, no filming is taking place.”
There’s an electronic form on the linked website above, which allows you to communicate your non-consent to appear in this program via the BC Civil Liberties Association.
