In Defense of PIPEDA

Professor Geist’s regular Toronto Star Law Bytes column (Toronto Star version, HTML backup article, homepage version) takes on the recent rise of criticism of PIPEDA Canada’s federal privacy legislation, which has been recently labelled a multi-dimensional mess by critics. The column argues that replacing the single federal standard with potentially competing provincial laws would be bad for business, privacy enforcement, and relations with the European Union. The column also examines the issues at the heart of the recent Quebec challenge of the law’s constitutionality.
