The Eye in the Sky: Facial Recognition Technology and the New Surveillance State

Posted on Tue, 3 Mar 2020

Facial recognition technology is increasingly being used by law enforcement across Canada. However, law enforcement has not always been transparent about its use. With little to no law currently regulating this technology, privacy advocates insist that Canadians should be concerned. In this episode, we explore these issues by speaking with Ignacio Cofone, assistant professor at the Faculty of Law of McGill University, and Andrea Slane, associate professor at the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities of the Ontario Tech University. This podcast is by Lexi Michaud and Alicia Krausewitz, board members of Volume 65 of the McGill Law Journal. Produced by Talia Huculak, podcast editor of Volume 65 of the McGill Law Journal.
