Imagine coming home to your apartment building and seeing a sniffer-dog your lobby from a private canine detection company hired by your landlord. Or you go to a music festival and there is a group of security guards and sniffer dogs. That’s what happened to Michelle Guo’s friend from Australia. So Michelle decided to look into the legality of using sniffer dogs and what our rights are here in Canada. What she’s discovered is a lot of grey areas.
Michelle Guo is a Media Studies Student and rabble podcast contributor from Montreal. She speaks to rabble radio host Victoria Fenner.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
