Documents reveal OPP’s powerful cellphone spy tech. Why does it no longer use it?

The Ontario Provincial Police acquired “Stingray” cellphone surveillance technology with the power to intercept private communications, according to documents obtained by the Star — a device with significantly more invasive capabilities than any other Canadian police force is known to have.

The OPP obtained the hardware five years ago. But a spokesperson says the force switched to equipment “not capable” of intercepting private communications in 2017. The force did not respond to questions about why it switched, or what happened to the previous device or devices, for which it ultimately paid more than $2 million.
