On May 7, 2008, the Canadian Border Services Agency with assistance from Peel Regional Police raided SDR Distribution, at Dixie Rd. and Highway 401 in Mississauga.

As the police held the workplace hostage, Border Service Agents swarmed the building, checking IDs, harassing workers, and arresting 45 undocumented women and men.

The raids took place the day after the Auditor General's Report claimed that there were 41,000 "missing" undocumented workers that had to be immediately apprehended. Harper's government has escalated its attack on migrant communities using police officers as its enforcement tools.
