CBC investigation first revealed questionable online conduct
Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day has launched an investigation into the online postings of recruits undergoing training in Quebec to become border guards.
On Monday, CBC News revealed that recruits in the training program of the Canada Border Services Agency had posted photographs of themselves drinking while in uniform, called Prime Minister Harper a serial killer, and referred to French Canadians as "f---ing bastards," all on the website Facebook.
Facebook is a popular social networking website that allows members to post pictures online and have group discussions. There are no restrictions on who can join.
