Newstalk 1010: Border guards

Canadian border guards are unarmed. Make sense of what doesn’t.

Sometimes the world can be a confusing place. Newstalk 1010 is a talk radio station that breaks down headline news for a more in-depth understanding of the issues. This billboard campaign drops truth bombs and invites audiences to tune in to make sense of a world that doesn’t make sense.

This entire series seems to be inspired from The Economist ads...
Now when I say 'inspire' I don't mean copied. These are like 50% fresher compared to them..

good work.

Maybe the "guards" are unarmed but the "officers" are armed. WE ARE NOT "GUARDS" WE ARE OFFICERS!!
