What Next in a Post-C-51 Canada?
Pre-publication text of an address delivered at the 2015 Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Institute for Information and Privacy Studies. The author reflects on the implications of the passage of the C-51 omnibus anti-terrorism bill, with reference to information and privacy issues. The address is framed as a proposal for a research agenda based on four questions: (1) How are police and security personnel being briefed and trained regarding their post-C-51 mandates?; (2) What policies, procedures, and interpretations will govern the securitization and sharing of information within and between federal government institutions?; (3) How will the C-51 changes impact intergovernmental collaboration and information sharing, especially with respect to personal information?; (4) How will the C-51 changes impact information and privacy rights under the Access to Information Act (ATIA) and Privacy Act?.
