In a brief and not deeply reasoned judgment, Ball J of the BC Supreme Court has stated that there is no tort of invasion of privacy under the law of British Columbia: Demcak v Ho, 2013 BCSC 899. The judge noted that a breach of privacy is actionable under BC's Privacy Act, but concluded that the legislation did not offer a remedy on the facts before him.

In light of the ruling of the Ontario Court of Appeal in Jones v Tsige, 2012 ONCA 32, which recognised a new tort of 'invasion upon seclusion' in that province, it is unlikely that Demcak v Ho will remain the last word on the subject on the west coast.
