From innocently using a payphone to squatting naked in a back room, probed by perverted and sadistic government parasites.
Shileen Flynn, 29, had already missed one flight and lost her luggage when she says she found herself in a room at the Vancouver airport, naked and squatting, while two crude border agents strip-searched her.
It was December, 2009, days after a suspected al-Qaida member tried to ignite an explosive device aboard a Detroit-bound flight. Flynn had just returned home to Vancouver from a trip to Seattle, and was on her way to Palma de Mallorca, Spain, to start a new job as a public relations officer.
She was a day behind schedule, having missed her flight from the U.S. the night before, and had to catch the next plane to Germany so she could then catch a flight to Spain and start work the next morning. Somewhere along the way, the airline lost her luggage.
She was talking to her mom on a pay phone when a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officer approached her.
“All of a sudden, the guy comes over to me and says, ‘Can I talk to you?’ I said, ‘Of course, why not?’” said Flynn.
She said he asked her where she was travelling and why she was using a pay phone. He told her to take off her sunglasses so he could see her eyes. She slipped them off, looked at the officer, and then pushed them back down.
His tone became aggressive, she said.
“He said, ‘No take your sunglasses off!’” said Flynn.
It all went downhill from there.
