Canadian National Railway says hidden cameras will stay

This is a follow-up to my previous blog entry (PIPEDA and Canadian Privacy Law: Article: CN's hidden camera sparks workers' ire). Canadian National Railway has responded to workers' concerns about hidden cameras by saying that they will stay and that the union will be told when they are activated. The article also quotes Brian Bowman of Pitblado in Winnipeg, the leading privacy lawyer in the prairies.

Winnipeg Sun: NEWS - CN cameras stay:

"CN Rail intends to use hidden cameras in its Transcona Wheel Yard despite union protests. Jim Feeny, a spokesman for the railway, said two cameras will remain in the ceiling and the Canadian Auto Workers will be told when they are activated. "
