STAND UP FOR PRI­VACY

Winnipeg Sun - - COMMENT -

It is time to get mad. This bill is a be­trayal of Cana­di­ans rights and a be­hind our backs as­sault on the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions we know we can trust. I spent nearly 50 years in bank­ing and gov­ern­ment and we were in­grained with pro­tect­ing client pri­vacy as an ab­so­lute. We can Trust our fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions ab­so­lutely. We can­not say the same for Statis­tics Canada whose very rea­son for ex­is­tence is to dis­sem­i­nate in­for­ma­tion to the pub­lic. I have made this clear to My Lib­eral MP in no un­cer­tain terms. I have reached out to all my friends on Face­book to take ac­tion as well. I be­lieve we need to fol­lowup with pe­ti­tions as well which I don’t know how to ini­ti­ate. We need to voice our ob­jec­tions to this ac­tion in no un­cer­tain terms. hank you for print­ing this.

FRED ADAIR The plan to har­vest bank­ing info is on hold for now. We need to keep the pres­sure on gov­ern­ment to do the right thing and per­ma­nently halt this ac­tion.
