Last week Narcity reported on a Toronto tourist who had realized that he was being spied on through a hidden camera in his Airbnb's alarm clock. Canadians across the country realized that technology in today's world is advancing and maybe we have too much faith that we're being protected. 

In similar fashion to the Airbnb story, Sydney Eatz posted on Facebook sharing a chilling story about how a Toronto building's security footage had somehow made its way onto the popular porn website, Pornhub. The footage showed a woman peeing in a hallway of Toronto's First Canadian Place building located at 100 King Street West.

After googling "Toronto Chick Pea's" while looking for hummus recipes, Eatz stumbled upon a very disturbing video that was titled "Toronto Chick Peeing" on PornHub. What was so disturbing was not that there was a video of that kind on a porn website, it was the fact that video was taken with a cell phone that recorded private security footage from the building.

First Canadian Place is a reputable building in Toronto that actually hosts the global headquarters for the Bank of Montreal. The building is also connected to the Exchange Tower, which is home of the Toronto Stock Exchange and has tons of retail outlets and food vendors available at the concourse level.

The security video showed a woman in the hallway of the building who was unable to make it to a toilet, so she stopped and relieved herself in the hallway. While the incident is bizarre, First Canadian Place security personnel, Ryan Chisholm confirmed with Narcity that filming security footage with a camera is strictly prohibited.

The footage has now been taken down off of PornHub since Narcity made the building aware of the video's existence. Still, the video was online for over three weeks and was viewed over 3,000 times.

The video was posted by a user with the name "jake4porn" and was the first to be posted by the user who has now completely disappeared from the site.

What's even more disturbing? That security videos are becoming more and more commonly found on Porn websites, despite the lack of consent from people found in the footage. 

In South Korea, illegal filming has increased dramatically over the past six years. Back in 2011, there were 1,300 incidents involving illegal filming whereas 2017 saw over 6,000. These cases have been from being taped at home, in public toilets with spy cams, as well as just being approached in the street and having photo's taken up their skirts.

These illegal films are ending up online and cannot be taken down unless the individuals being secretly filmed can prove that they did not consent for being involved in the footage. That's exactly why thousands of women in South Korea protested on August 4, promoting this issue with the slogan "My Life Is Not Your Porn."

First Canadian Place had no idea that the footage had been leaked online three weeks ago until Narcity reached out regarding the video on PornHub. Since then they have taken action on the employee who posted the footage online. 

Claire Holland, the North American media relations officer for Brookfield Properties such as the First Canadian Place building issued Narcity the following statement via email. 

"We take the confidentiality and privacy of all those who visit our property very seriously. After becoming aware of the video, we took immediate steps to remove it and investigate how it came to be posted.  As a result, a security guard from our contracted security provider has been terminated."

The biggest issue now facing this footage is that cached versions of the page can still exist, even after the video is taken down off the porn site. 

It's important to remember that these incidents can happen to any Canadian, nor are we necessarily aware of it happening. With increasing technology and security footage across the country, it's important to be aware what risks come with constant monitoring of our every move and where the footage can ultimately end up.
