In Committee from the House of Commons

Justice and Human Rights – June 10, 2014

Canada’s new Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien presents his views on the government’s cyberbullying legislation. He reiterates his position that Bill C-13 should be divided, an opinion he first offered last week when being questioned about his nomination by another committee. He also outlines his office’s main concerns with the bill, which include lowering the threshold for granting warrants to access data, increased investigative powers for authorities and legal immunity for voluntary disclosures made to government without court authorization. His colleagues Patricia Kosseim and Megan Brady respond as well to MPs’ questions. (June 10, 2014)
