Canadian Government's Big Fat Privacy Lie
Personal information will not be made public ... unless it gets lost or stolen or hacked into or whispered about at a cocktail party.
Uleth.ca: Canadian Internet Providers may not be protecting your privacy
"May not be". That's cute. If you strolled around starkers in public, the Law would toss a blanket around you and haul you downtown -- because only medical and government employees and Lockheed Martin are allowed to see your private parts, eh?
GlobalNews: StatCan scooped up 15 years of personal financial data from Canadian credit bureau
It's unacceptable because it's happening during a Liberal administration with an election looming. Do we seriously think, that once in place, a Conservative government would prevent this sort of thing? It may cancel or reduce the Census, but only because the info can now too easily be got elsewhere.
GlobalNews: Trudeau defends Statistics Canada move to collect banking info of 500,000 Canadians
When the government says "hand it over", the answer is "Oh, okay." Banks and Internet providers have clean hands because the government can be trusted, right?
Sure. They can be trusted to lose whole boxes of your private parts without anybody at all being at fault. Take the census, for example. Go ahead, take it, if you want to, but I don't want to. I'm with these guys: Count Me Out.
CBC: Statistics Canada loses, mishandles hundreds of sensitive census, employment files
Not to mention the "design flaws" in the government website:
CBC: Design flaws crashed StatsCan's census website: documents
And they wonder why there's a growing contingent of refuseniks!
Globe&Mail: Census refusenik avoids fine and prison
Still, StatsCan repeats its mantra:
CTV: StatCan wants Canadians' financial data, downplays privacy concerns
Not unless they mislay more boxes of files, or forget to lock file drawers. Funnest of all, hundreds of government employees will be able to find out what their social acquaintances are worth. Not to worry, though -- they're secret cleared, which could mean they're cleared to reveal secrets.
And then there's the problem of the Canadian Census having resurrected "The Jewish Question":
CJNews: Change in census question led to dramatic undercounting of Canadian Jews
I guess you'd have to ask a Jewish person if that's a good or bad thing.
Upshot: Don't believe it when any government official promises to protect your privacy. They knew it was a fiction several years ago when the Conservatives were still in power.
