    As always, press is starting mass hysteria out of nothing. As if no one knows that the state spies on it’s own citizens. Normal practice in any part of the world.

      The problem is, is that this SHOULD cause mass hysteria… just because spying is the norm now doesn’t make it right. This is absolutely deplorable behavior by our govt or any other govt that does this. If they want my info they should be forced to ask nicely and pay me for it. If only there was some type of GOVERNing body that could impose such a process…. sigh…

      it sucks, but ya. They can deny it all they want, but they do it.

      Right. Living in the PRC would be a much better idea……….oh………wait.

      There are Westerners work and live in China… Go talk to them.

    Obviously a warrant or court order isn’t required before they can use these spy cell towers to access your smartphone. That’s kind of against established privacy rights.

    It could be a variety of state players doing the spying (outside of our own) but I gotta chuckle out of the fact that CBC knows more about what’s going on than our multi billion dollar spy agency. I live in BC and 2 years ago the failed attempt to turn 2 methadone addicts into terrorist attackers by our other spy agency ended up with the supreme court throwing it out. Don’t hold your breath on either one keeping us safe.
