Cyborg strip searched by Air Canada

http://www.theregus.com/content/28/24417.html

Quote:
Captain Cyborg is suing Air Canada for CAN$1m for hurt feelings, loss of incomes etc, after he was stripsearched and missed his flight.

Professor Steve Mann of the University of Toronto, who describes himself as a cyborg, attempted to board a flight at St. John's, Newfoundland wearing "computerized glasses, headgear and electronic body suit". He was stopped and "subjected to an extensive search". So extensive that he missed his flight, and was unable to get another flight for two days.
