The controversy over the personal data of Facebook subscribers being used for election campaigns in the United States has amplified the concerns of Canada’s Privacy Commissioner, who has been studying this phenomenon for years.

Cyber security expert Steve Waterhouse explains why it is difficult to use legislation to prevent this type of personal data breach.

MPs David Lametti, Jacques Gourde and Anne Minh-Thu Quach discuss how political parties use data collection for analysis.
