The Supreme Court of Canada says a London, Ont., teacher who secretly filmed female students’ chests with a camera pen is guilty of voyeurism — a ruling that could have an impact on future privacy-related cases.

At issue in the case was whether the students — youths aged 14 to 18 — had a reasonable expectation of privacy when they were being secretly recorded by Ryan Jarvis on school property.

In a unanimous decision Thursday morning, the top court said students doing everyday activities at school don’t give up their privacy rights — even if the school maintains security cameras.

Discussion

1) As technology gets ever smaller, and has wifi-capabilites built in, how might a school ensure that students are not being spied on?

2) Is there a service you could provide here?
