Privacy Commissioner of Canada Daniel Therrien believes the question about whether privacy legislation should be amended is in the past. It is no longer should the country's privacy laws be amended, but what is the best way to do so, and with the announcement of the country's Digital Charter, the commissioner said the federal government seems to agree. Therrien covered the latest development during his keynote speech at the IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium. The commissioner also announced his office will suspend its consultation on trans-border data flows in its current form and seek more privacy rights for citizens. The IAPP's Ryan Chiavetta, CIPP/US, has the details from Toronto for The Privacy Advisor.
