Letter to MP Gord Johns re. Privacy
To: Gord Johns, MP
House of Commons
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6
Dear Mr. Johns,
Trump has dictated that foreigners (including Canadians) no longer have a right to privacy. What will you do to help protect Canadians from U.S. surveillance and data mining?
If the U.S. won’t protect our privacy, the Canadian government should end all information sharing agreements. Our financial status, medical records, religious and political beliefs, etc, doesn’t belong in the hands of a government that now can legally do whatever they want with it, even sell it on the open market.
If the U.S. won’t protect our privacy, the Canadian government should mandate that Canadian Internet traffic should NOT flow through the U.S., where it will be recorded, analyzed, and who knows what.
If the U.S. won’t protect our privacy, the Canadian government should mandate that Canadian corporations and government bodies must explicitly disclose when personal and private information will be disclosed to the U.S., so we can make informed decisions about what information we’re putting at risk.
