A camera discovered during a taxicab ride in Halifax is stirring privacy concerns, CBC News reports. Jennifer McInnis said the driver responded to questions about the camera's purpose and notification of its existence with "a shrug of the shoulder, or just looking at us in the rearview mirror." The camera use falls under Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, which requires consent for collection, use and disclosure of personal information during commercial activity. "The business needs to identify the purposes and I think that most companies that have surveillance cameras don't do that," McInnes Cooper Partner David Fraser said. "A taxi driver that does not have signage related to the use of a camera is not complying with what the requirements are under our privacy legislation."
