The government of British Columbia is considering replacement options after the surprise announcement by Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham that she would serve in the U.K. after her current term ends July 6, The Vancouver Sun reports. “The normal procedure would be for the all-party committee to make a unanimous recommendation to the legislature, and the legislature to affirm that choice,” the report states. However, the “lengthy process” is not something the committee is sure they can complete by Denham’s term end in July, in which case the cabinet would nominate an interim commissioner. Editor’s Note: Denham will provide a keynote address at the IAPP Privacy Symposium this May, in Toronto.
