George Orwell’s 1984…
… was supposed to be a warning about police states.
The Canadian Border Services Agency told The Ottawa Citizen that unidentified sites at airports and borders are already equipped with audio-video monitoring to boost security. The audio technology, though installed, is not recording just yet.
“It will become functional at a later date,” a CBSA spokesman said.
When it does, the technology “will record conversations,” a CBSA said in a statement to The Ottawa Citizen.
Man… this is scary. Exactly how far is too far?
Why stop at airports? Why not malls? Buses? Coffee shops?
