Lawyer Zool Suleman seeks apology over 'dehumanizing' filmed raids on migrant workersWhat Diana Thompson and her eight-year-old daughter hoped could at least be a tearful goodbye turned to sobs of frustration as her husband was evicted from Canada late last night.

Today, the lawyer for the detained men demanded an apology from federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, the Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) and the producers of a television show which filmed the raid.

Lawyer Zool Suleman told reporters today that the presence of a film crew, and news that Toews personally signed off on the show, is “stigmatizing, demeaning and dehumanizing” to his clients.

“My clients are not here for the entertainment of other people,” Suleman said today.
