British Columbia Information and Privacy Commissioner Michael McEvoy said his office will be conducting an investigation into the ways the province’s political parties use personal data, the Vancouver Courier reports. McEvoy said the probe will be similar to the U.K. information commissioner’s inquiry into the subject. While the investigation is focused on political parties within British Columbia, McEvoy said members of the federal government are urging federal political parties to take part in the investigation. McEvoy’s office has worked on voter data investigations with both the ICO and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.
