Nova Scotia Information and Privacy Commissioner Catherine Tully has called for a delay to update the law governing the province’s credit unions, CBC News reports. Tully cited four issues she had with Bill 97 in a letter to Finance Minister Karen Casey. Tully noted a provision to allow the superintendent of credit unions "to provide personal information to other governmental or regulatory authorities inside and outside of Canada without any of the protections afforded in the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act." Casey said she has no plans to delay the revamped Bill 97. The finance minister said any information shared until the bill would be corporate data and not personal in nature.
