A group of law firms plans to file a lawsuit against the Northwestern Territories government over several health care data breaches that have occurred over the past decade, CBC News reports. The lawsuit will cover different incidents, which include medical records found in a Fort Simpson dump and a stolen laptop that held the health information of 80% of citizens in the province.

They have to be hurt. They have to feel the economic pain," said Steven Cooper, one of the lawyers involved in the suit.
