Sean Bruyea, a Canadian Forces veteran and long-time veterans' rights activist, discovered that at least 614 people have accessed his personal records a total of 4,131 times, reports the Toronto Sun. Records Brunyea made public this week show that government officials discussed his medical records in several e-mails, and a 13-page briefing to former Veterans Affairs Minister Greg Thompson outlined Bruyea's psychiatric conditions. According to the report, Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart has been investigating the breach for more than a year and has expressed concern over the allegations. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has pledged to cooperate with Commissioner Stoddart's investigation, calling the breach "unacceptable."
