Surveillance is a global issue, with personal information being shared across jurisdictions, at times in a manner that contravenes the most basic principles of privacy and freedom. Canadians can no longer be complacent and criticize the United States for allowing the NSA so much unsupervised power. We know startlingly little about what our government is doing – and, potentially, what foreign intelligence agencies are doing – with their personal information. It is disturbing that there has been so little debate on this important issue, even in Parliament. It is time for citizens to speak out so that we can protect our freedom and take back our privacy. In a free and open society, we deserve no less.

Join Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian, and esteemed guests as they address these important issues on International Privacy Day:
