The Harper government has been hammered lately for economic action plans that some say just promote Tories and for green-lighting a controversial reality show that featured a border raid in British Columbia.

Naturally, “22 Minutes” has found a way to make light of both hot-button issues.

In a preview of Tuesday night’s show, comedian Mark Critch is in pursuit of “illegals” at a construction site in Welland, Ontario for a new reality TV show, ‘Border Security.’

“We received a tip that some illegals were working at this construction site, so..”

A voice off-camera calls for a cut after realizing that something is missing.

In the next instant, a huge, economic action plan billboard can be seen in the background.

“We received a tip that some illegals were working at this.. Canada’s economic action plan-supported construction site,” he says, awkwardly.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes airs on CBC TV Tuesday nights at 8:30 p.m. Catch more clips of the show on Facebook and Twitter.
