Public Record - 2008 Annual Couchiching Conference – Government, Openness and Connections


In the first session on August 10th, entitled "Security: Government, Openness and Connections," a panel of speakers explore how the proliferation of information technology has changed the relationship between citizens and public institutions, including issues related to privacy. The Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs hosts its 77th annual Couchiching Conference, Orillia, Ont., August 7–10, 2008. This year’s conference is entitled "The Power of Knowledge: The New Global Currency."

The panellists are Jennifer Stoddart (the Privacy Commissioner of Canada), Richard Smith (a professor in the School of Communication at Simon Fraser University), and Darol Dumaine (from the United States Department of Energy). After speaking, panellists field questions from conference attendees.
