The Uni­ver­sity of Vic­to­ria pro­fes­sor has ded­i­cated re­search into pri­vacy pro­tec­tion poli­cies in Canada and abroad. Ben­nett has been look­ing into po­lit­i­cal par­ties and their use of so­cial me­dia and on­line data col­lec­tion long be­fore the Cam­bridge An­a­lyt­ica and Face­book scan­dal. He ex­plains par­ties – both pro­vin­cial and fed­eral – hold lots of data on vot­ers that in re­cent years they’ve been able to har­ness to shop for vot­ers they know will sup­port them.

The Cal­gary Food Bank, one of the largest emer­gency food providers, sup­ple­ments food ham­pers with fresh pro­duce from vol­un­teer­run gar­dens, when it’s avail­able, in­stead of re­ly­ing on the typ­i­cal canned fare.

But this year, its two largest pro­duce donors, the Gar­den of Eat’n and POWER gar­den, are out of com­mis­sion.

In an av­er­age sea­son, the two vol­un­teer-run gar­dens bring the food bank a 50,000-pound bounty of fresh beets car­rots, peas and root veg­eta­bles. Last sea­son’s tally was 30,000. But the gar­dens that would usu­ally help fill ham­pers in the late sum­mer and fall months are tran­si­tion­ing to new plots and prep­ping soil for plant­ing next year.

Ex­perts say politi­cians who could tighten rules have a vested in­ter­est in the sta­tus quo.

“In a com­pet­i­tive elec­toral en­vi­ron­ment and, and lord knows Al­berta’s com­pet­i­tive, they’re not go­ing to want to con­strain their abil­ity to cam­paign,” Ben­nett said. “Nev­er­the­less, what Cam­bridge An­a­lyt­ica has done is put the spot­light on a far big­ger prob­lem.”
