MP accuses RCMP officials of delivering 'dodgy' testimony on facial recognition technology

State Media: 'An attempt by members of Parliament to find out more about the RCMP's use of controversial facial recognition software hit a wall Monday as one MP accused police officials of being "intentionally evasive."

'The standing committee on access to information, privacy and ethics met this morning to continue its study of the use of the emerging technology in Canada.

'Their efforts come a year after federal Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien stated that the RCMP's use of facial recognition software created by the U.S.-based Clearview AI amounted to a serious violation of Canada's privacy laws.'
