The Debate Over Privacy Law Continues

In response to my recent Toronto Star column 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. see: Canada Badly Needs National Standard also see: Owens Rebuttal
