Journal Journal: Woman Mocked, Humiliated by Security in Airport Strip Search 6

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. Flynn -- a frequent traveller who has been strip-searched twice before -- said this time was different. She said the women made her bend over a table, open her legs, and squat and cough.
