Getting consent to publish a child’s photo…

in campaign literature, a permit to hold a presser on a subway car… meh. Hudak and the Cons are above that, it seems.

A Durham Region woman is upset her eight-year-old stepdaughter’s photo is being used in a Progressive Conservative Party pamphlet.

The PC literature was delivered in the Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock riding, where Tory Laurie Scott is the incumbent, and a copy ended up at the home of a family friend.

“I don’t want that picture available to the general public,” Jennifer Dugan said Wednesday. “In this day and age you never know whose hands that photo could fall into.”

This is the statement what I find more than a bit surprising:

Delaney (PC spokesminion) said the young girl’s photo was one of many taken at the event. She added it is not the party’s practice to have waivers signed at public events, and said no one else in the photo had signed a waiver.

Seriously?

It is standard practice to get waivers before using images. I NEVER publish any picture of a person (child or adult) without their permission. And none of the organisations with which I am affiliated would ever think of doing so either.

Sheesh!
