The Ottawa Citizen reports on a Nanos Research/Policy Options poll of 1,000 Canadians that indicates while respondents believe technology can help solve problems, its impact on their privacy raises concerns. Canadians weighed in on how technology could help with climate change, medical care for the elderly, creating jobs for the middle class, creating economic equality and preserving personal privacy, the report states. Nik Nanos, chairman of Nanos Research, said the majority of responses were positive, with the “one dark cloud” being that about 34 per cent believe technology has a negative impact on privacy. “We’re technology optimists in the big picture,” Nanos said. “But when it comes to our personal lives, we worry.”
