Wow, when I first saw the headline I thought this was in America, surprised they can demand his password for purported traces

A Quebec man who refused to give his smartphone password to border officials at Halifax Stanfield International Airport last year has pleaded guilty and been fined $500.

Alain Philippon, of Ste-Anne-des-Plaines, Que., had said he would fight the charge of hindering or obstructing border officials, but changed course Monday morning when his lawyer entered a guilty plea on his behalf in provincial court in Dartmouth, N.S.

Philippon flew from the Dominican Republic to Halifax in March 2015. At the airport, he picked up his bags and headed to the customs security check.

According to an agreed statement of facts, Philippon had $5,000, two phones and traces of cocaine on his bags when he arrived in Halifax.

Canada Border Services Agency officials asked for Philippon's smartphone and its password. He handed over his BlackBerry but refused to disclose the code to access the phone.
