Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta jt Lang says controversial wiretap law doesn't apply to wireless OTTAWA Justice Minister Otto Lang says that as far as he is anybody can listen in on anybody else's radio broadcast without violating the new Protection of Privacy Act. He said in an interview Thursday that the anti-bugging legislation passed by Parliament last year and now the centre of some is designed to protect privacy on wires but not on wireless. But the minister added that it is not up to the federal justice department to interpret an act of Parliament. In the case of the wiretap which came into effect June enforcement was up to provincial attorneys- general. They must lay charges under it and the courts then could interpret it. The interview came a day after Leslie Lethbridge of Ham- was charged with intercepting private commu- nications and with possession of a listening'device prohibited under the legislation. Hamilton police seized a radio they said could receive calls from a regional police dispatcher. Mr. Lang would not comment on that case or specifically on some controversies developing in the Ottawa city council and police department about tape recordings and radio broadcasts. He did speak generally about the act that forbids all except by police in regulated and possession of bugging devices. He said it was not the intent of the framers of the legisla- tion to ban interception of radio whether telephone or otherwise. Such a ban would be an impossibility. He said if people want a private they will not speak on the air where it is easy for others to overhear. wouldn't conduct a private conversation in a crowd of 20 he said. He was giving an opinion on a matter that can have a wide application. For many commercially sold radios have a po- lice band. A narrow interpretation of the law could make them all prohibited devices. Many newspapers and radio stations routinely monitor police radio broadcasts to get fast tips on important news stories. Mr. Lang says this is all right but it still is an open question whether attorneys-general and local police will agree. He said he does not believe that radio-telephone calls can be covered by the any more than amateur radio broad- casts. The problem of what does or does not constitute illegal interference of a conversation arises out of a section of the legislation which forbids wilful interception of a private conversation by means of an mechanical or other Such an interception is legal if done by a who has the consent to express or of the origina- tor of the private communication or of the person intended by the orginator thereof to receive The act also makes it unlawful to possess any of the elec- tromagnetic and other devices that the design thereof renders it primarily useful for surreptitious inter- ception of private It defines these devices as any device or apparatus that is used or is capable of being used to intercept a private com- not including hearing aids. Thus a conversation between two people cannot be record- ed or intercepted by a third without permission of one of the former. The exception is when police get permission from a judge.
