NDP Wants Investigation into Facebook Data Misuse

NDP ethics critic Charlie Angus, public safety critic Matthew Dubé and MP Brian Masse speak to reporters on Parliament Hill. The party wants Canada’s privacy commissioner to investigate Facebook to ensure Canadian Facebook users’ information has not been compromised, in the wake of alleged misuse of personal information posted on the social media website. The NDP is also calling for a parliamentary investigation.

The private data of 50 million Facebook subscribers was allegedly used by the U.K. firm Cambridge Analytica to help Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. (March 20, 2018) (no interpretation)
