The Debate Over Privacy Law Continues

In response to my recent Toronto Star column (Toronto Star version, HTML backup article, homepage version) defending PIPEDA, Canada’s privacy law, the paper today features a debate over the arguments presented in that column. Professor Richard Owens argues that PIPEDA "tarnishes lawmaking, impedes business unnecessarily and threatens constitutional disorder", while I continue to defend the privacy statute, maintaining that the historical record suggests that business actively upported the law and the establishment of a national standard in its current form. also see: Owens Rebuttal
