Border deal challenge? Convincing Canadians their privacy won’t be invaded
Among the biggest challenges to a border trade and security agreement announced by Canada and the United States this week will be convincing Canadians their privacy won’t be invaded, U.S. Ambassador David Jacobson said Friday.“There is this kind of urban legend that hey, the United States, once we get your information, it’s just there, anybody can look at it for any purpose,” he told the National Post’s editorial board. “That’s just not true. We value [privacy] as much as Canadians value it. This is confidential personal information, and it is important that we maintain the confidence of it and all those safeguards that we have in our system are going to apply to any information that we’re going to get in this process.”
