Man Arrested For Refusing To Unlock Phone At Border

We've already had a few cases like this here in the United States, so it will be interesting to see how this case in Canada plays out.

A Quebec man charged with obstructing border officials by refusing to give up his smartphone password says he will fight the charge. Alain Philippon, 38, of Ste-Anne-des-Plaines, Que., refused to divulge his cellphone password to Canada Border Services Agency during a customs search Monday night at Halifax Stanfield International Airport.
