    Bomb hunters TV show

    Actually on a point of jurisdiction, the camera crew would be subject to the CLC Part II and Regs and the "Clearance divers" would be subject to the provincial regulations as EOD type work is not specifically federally regulated.. Having said that as an ex inspector I bet both the provincial...
