Posted by CBC News on Wednesday, July 21, 2018 07:24:56It’s been a tough week for people trying to hangup on their loved ones.
A couple of hours after he called her last Thursday, Scott said he had to hang-up again because he couldn’t find the number he had called earlier.
“I didn’t know that the number was on my phone,” he said.
The phone rang again and he was able to make out what he was calling about.
Scott said he was surprised to hear that he was being recorded.
“What kind of recording is that?” he asked.
“To be honest, I’m not even sure how that works,” Scott said.
He said he wasn’t sure why he was recording the call, but that he thought he would have been better off just saying he was hanging up.
Scott has been calling 911 more than once since he last called in the middle of the night.
It’s the first time he has ever called 911, but he said he feels like he’s being recorded more than he is.
“The police officers who were there to help me last night are the last people who should have been there,” Scott added.
“They were the ones that had to take my call, they were the last ones to get me to get on the phone.”
He said that, in fact, he did have a number on his phone, but it was disconnected.
Scott had to call 911 again the next day to make sure he had the number.
He said he doesn’t feel comfortable calling the police because he doesn: “I feel like I’m in danger.”
Scott said the phone calls that he has been having are frustrating because he feels he’s constantly being recorded and that his calls are being monitored by people in his office.
“There are people who are very close to me who are trying to help, but I’m having to get away from them because they’re trying to stop me from calling the 911,” he added.
The police spokesperson said the use of technology in call recording has not yet been approved by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).
“We have received and are reviewing the data in relation to this matter,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
“We are reviewing our processes for the use and disclosure of personal information in this area, including our policy on the use, storage and retention of personal data.”
Police said that Scott had called the number repeatedly and that it was not his number.
