Four Americans who wanted to come to Canada to film a movie were turned away twice this summer for not having the right permits.
The Canada Border Security Agency revealed yesterday that the quartet had arrived at the Boissevain border crossing on Aug. 10, and were trying to enter the country to make a film. Without any of the appropriate documents, border officers refused them entry to the country.
However, the four tried again later the same day, at the Goodlands border crossing south of Deloraine.
Border officers turned them away again, and told them to stop trying until they got work permits.
The CBSA said that more than 250,000 people came into Manitoba across the southern border in August. Only 131 were denied entry.
