Surrey strata president told he can't use cameras to fine residents. He disagrees
From Global News - August 11, 2017

The president of an embattled strata council at a Surrey condo building defended its use of surveillance cameras to enforce bylaws after residents complained about $40,000 in fines allegedly being issued in a single month.

Alin Stana is the president of the strata council at the DCorize building, at 104th Avenue in Surreys Whalley area.

Residents of the building have complained about how the council has enforced its bylaws, which has included the issuance of fines of up to $400 for improperly disposing of cardboard.

Coverage of stratas on Globalnews.ca:

The executive director of the Condo Homeowners Association of B.C. told Global News that privacy laws dont allow stratas to enforce their bylaws using cameras.

Stana feels differently.

He would be wrong about that, respectfully, he told Global News.

We will just have to go to the Privacy Information and Protection Act section 1, section 11, and section 14.

Stanas remarks came one day after Global News reported on an ongoing protest by residents concerned about the size of the fines that are being issued.

Errol Polvah said he received a $200 fine for driving away before the parking gate was completely closed.
