Women at Dalhousie spied on

Secret videos posted online, police investigating

Women at Dalhousie University are being filmed without their knowledge and the video is being posted online. The director of security for the school, Mike Burns, recently emailed students warning them of the incidents. “The videos were taken without consent of the subjects and appear to have been taken in a manner where the subjects would have been unaware that they were being recorded,” Burns wrote. “The nature of the video is an invasion of individual privacy, as well as being offensive in its content toward the subject of the recording.” At least one student has filed a complaint with the police. The university has not confirmed whether or not the videos are still available online.
