“La Presse says Montreal police tracked journalist’s iPhone for months” by Ingrid Peritz, The Globe and Mail.

The Globe and Mail quotes Montréal lawyer Christian Leblanc in an article about Montreal Police’s surveillance of a journalist.

“It has to be a last resort,” said Christian Leblanc, former president of the Canadian Media Lawyers Association. “I have rarely seen this kind of procedure against a journalist, and thank God they’re not often delivered.”

He called Mr. Lagacé an “innocent third party” in the case. “It will hinder journalists in their quest to get to stories based on confidential sources. This is a serious interference in the public’s right to information.”
