Quebec Privacy Commissioner Lays Down Law on Public Video Cameras

From today's Montreal Gazette:

Montreal Gazette - network:

"Quebec's privacy watchdog issued public surveillance guidelines Wednesday after video cameras were installed on a drug-ridden street in Montreal.

The provincial access to information commission said public cameras should only be used as a last resort to prevent serious crime problems or for the protection of property.

Commission president Diane Boissinot said the cameras should only be used only at specific times for a specific period."
