RCMP faces suit over facial recognition tool

A Quebec photographer wants a judge to order the RCMP to destroy all the images of Canadians it obtained through a controversial facial recognition tool.

Ha Vi Doan’s proposed class-action lawsuit in Federal Court seeks unspecified damages for her and other Canadians whose photos and related information were allegedly part of a massive database compiled by U.S. firm Clearview AI and used by the Mounties.

Clearview AI’S technology worries many privacy advocates because it allows for the collection of huge numbers of images from multiple sources with the aim of helping police forces, financial institutions and other clients identify individuals from photos.
