Canadian Stasi: RCMP admits they hack Canadians’ devices to spy on them
The Counter Signal: Bexte: 'According to Politico, the RCMP claim they only use such spyware in the most “serious cases,” such as when there are national security concerns. However, this is the first time the RCMP has openly admitted that they infiltrate mobile devices to collect data, despite having access to the technology for years.
'Their admission came after a Conservative MP questioned what government programs are used to gather data on Canadians last week.
'“This is a kind of capability that they have done everything possible to keep incredibly quiet,” said UofT senior research associate Christopher Parsons.'
