BLOG: The Eagles Nest


Finally after a public and political uproar StatsCan's intent to harvest the data of 500,000 Canadians private financial information without their consent, has been put on hold. We wrote letters, blogs and many texts as a small part of what turned out to be a tidal wave of negative noise. The Canadian Bankers Association deserves credit for standing up for the principle of customer privacy in the face of federal government appointed and elected officials who were spear heading the initiative. When citizens' freedom and privacy are compromised by the government at any level hiding behind ill thought out powers and regulations our democracy is at risk.

Keep up the fight against these non-consensual intrusions within our industry and beyond. These actions are unwelcome and further encourage hacking into government data bases which are not 100% protected but opens another potential window of criminal opportunity.
