Under Canadian law is it legal for a methadone clinic to have cameras in the bathroom to watch you pee in a cup?
I am not sure, but I would think it is, as long as anyone using the clinic is told before hand about the camera. You do not have an absolute right to privacy. Cameras in bathrooms are normally not allowed, as there is a reasonable expectation of privacy in a bathroom, but where there was a specific need for some type of security, such as ensuring there is no funny business with a urine sample, I think you would not have that same expectation of privacy. You are basically waiving that right to privacy as a condition of using the clinc, in my view.
If there is no real reason that they need to monitor if a person is really giving a valid sample though, then no way should they have a camera in a bathroom.
