It’s very, very windy in St. John’s. I know because I’ve been here all week meeting with, and doing training for a large number of provincial public servants. The weather, albeit a tad bit gustier than I’m used to, has cooperated and, as with all trips to St. John’s, I’m struck with how friendly everyone is. I’m sure they put friendliness juice in the water!
Newfoundland and Labrador has relatively modern access to information and privacy legislation governing the public sector. As such, the privacy pros working in government are pretty savvy and, after this week, a good number of them will actually be certified. A good model for all public servants across the country, so if you’re one of them and want to look into this for yourself, let me know and we’ll see what can be done to make that happen.
And, not to bore you too much with my travel itinerary, I do want to give a quick shout out to everyone who will be in DC next week for the Summit. I’ll be doing my best to represent Canada but would love the opportunity to say hi and hear from other Canadians who plan to come. I know there will be thousands of people there, but I do stand out in a crowd because of my unique hairdo, see? Now you have no excuse!
And, after DC, of course there is the Symposium to get excited about. More to come on that soon!
