Not only have body scanners already been ordered to ship to Canada but also laws pertaining to or concerning privacy have already been written and ready to be enforced.
Minister of State Rob Merrifield says, “We are not immune to acts of terrorism or terrorist threats and we must remain vigilant to be at the forefront of new security technology.”
The scanners will be able to see three-dimensional images of passengers and possess the ability to see through clothes revealing any concealed weapons or explosives. These will be installed over the next two months at 11 airports.
44 of these controversial scanners, which cost 250,000 Canadian dollars each (240,000 US) are to be set up in total in an effort to ensure all passengers and personnel safety.
