Re: Privacy watchdog launches spyware investigation, News (Jan. 23)

Are all employee work computers at Saanich Municipality loaded with Spector 360 monitoring ( spying ) software?

Does this include the municipal hall, municipal yard, engineering, police force and fire departments?

What was the initial cost of this monitoring software?

Does each work station require a “licence” from the software company?

What is the cost of each “license” and what is the total annual operating cost to the Saanich taxpayers for this “monitoring” program?

The old municipal council under Frank Leonard approved this expenditure? How many other municipalities in the Greater Victoria area use this kind of software to monitor council and employees?
