R v Tessling, 2004 SCC 67, [2004] 3 SCR 432

The use of a FLIR device by the police does not constitute a violation of rights under s.8.

Section 8 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects a person's reasonable expectation of privacy.
** For something to be private in the realm of s.8, one must have a reasonable expectation of privacy; and if that expectation is violated by police, it could be in violation of s.8
