CPC asks privacy commissioner to investigate potential privacy breach of CRA employee whistleblowers
National Post: 'The Conservatives want the federal privacy commissioner to investigate “disturbing” potential privacy breaches that revealed the personal information of dozens of Canada Revenue Agency whistleblowers in public court documents.
'“It is very disturbing, that they would so carelessly make all that information public. It really does undermine the concept of protecting whistleblowers and allowing them to come forward,” Conservative MP James Bezan said in an interview Monday.
'Last week, Bezan sent a letter to the privacy commissioner requesting he investigate how the private information of dozens of Canada Revenue Agency employees who have made allegations against their employer found their way into publicly available documents as part of unrelated legal proceedings at the federal court.'
