In a recent Vancouver case, the police used the surveillance cameras at a Casino to zoom-in on someone’s Blackberry, to read his texts. The police were trying to gather intelligence on this person.  At trial, the judge ruled that the accused’s Charter rights against unreasonable search and seizure were breached. The texts were excluded as evidence.  See: R. v. Ley, [2014] B.C.J. No. 2753 (B.C.S.C.)
