If you are a Canadian photographer, photographing in public, then you have every right to continue doing so. There may be special restrictions on photographing military bases, but aside from special cases like that, it is your RIGHT to photograph in public.
Feel free to print out this mini info page and give it to anyone that may hassle you while you are enjoying your right to photography. Thx to casil403 for putting this together.
Thanks for your interest in my photography. I want to inform you that I am doing nothing wrong:
I am guaranteed that right to take pictures in public in Canada because it is clearly outlined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Section 2.b) states that as both a Canadian citizen and as a photographer I am allowed:
“Freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;â€
This statement absolutely guarantees my right to express myself through photography, and the freedom to publish my photos. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees my right to take photographs in public.
I can take photos of anything and under regular circumstances, as long as no laws are broken while photographing, it is not against the law.
Hat tip to casil403 for writing this up.
