McInnes Cooper's David Fraser in E-Commerce Law Reports: Ontario Court Provides Guidelines to Balance Privacy Rights & “Tower Dumps" in R v. Rogers Communications
March 27, 2016
By David Fraser, at McInnes Cooper
On January 14, 2016, the Ontario Superior Court decided that Canadians have a clear privacy interest in their records of their cellular telephone activity, and telcos not only can stand up for their customers’ privacy rights in those records– they may be contractually obligated to do so.
McInnes Cooper privacy lawyer David Fraser suggests the set of guidelines produced by the Court to be followed by the police and justices of the peace is at the heart of the decision and will hopefully have a far-reaching impact. For Canada, this is a very important decision that pulls tower dump production orders out of the shadows, shines the light on overly-broad orders and has led to very sensible, balanced rules to be followed by the police and justices of the peace.
