Man says he found a hidden camera in a Toronto Airbnb

You like to think that when you check in to a hotel or an Airbnb you have some privacy, that at the very least there isn't someone watching your every move.

But for a couple visiting Toronto from Scotland, it seems that wasn't the case.

Dougie Hamilton wrote about his experience on Facebook.

He says and his partner were staying at an Airbnb near King and Bathurst.

After a long day of wandering around the city he says he laid down on the sofa in an open-plan bedroom. That's when he noticed a digital clock.

Having just watched a video on tiny modern day cameras, Hamilton says he started to wonder. So, he pulled off the faceplate and found what appears to be a hidden camera.

Police are investigating and Airbnb tells the Toronto Star they've kicked the host off their platform.
