Global News report reveals even more invasion of Canadians privacy by the formerly-trusted agency.
The more closely we look at Statistics Canada, the worse it gets.
After revelations that the Trudeau government-controlled agency was seeking to take the private banking info of 500,000 Canadians, Global News is reporting that under the Trudeau government, Stats Canada has already taken 15 years worth of our credit card info:
“As Statistics Canada plans to build a massive new personal information bank with the real-time financial transaction data of hundreds of thousands of Canadians, Global News has learned the agency has scooped up 15 years’ worth of credit rating information from a major international credit bureau which could include millions of Canadians.”
“The data harvest was done without the consent or knowledge of those Canadians whose credit history was passed on Statistics Canada.”
Stats Canada took the info in October 2017, and January 2018. The info was from Trans Union – who was ordered to “provide social insurance numbers, names, addresses, dates-of-birth and detailed credit information, including balances owed, balances overdue, and more than 30 other fields or categories of data.”
Andrew Scheer rips Stats Canada’s attempt to take info without the permission of Canadians:
“It caught many, many Canadians by surprise,” Scheer said while speaking at the Toronto Real Estate Board’s annual meeting. “We have a government entity that is not just going to get a snapshots of the population, but specific transactional data about where you’ve been spending your money, what you’ve been putting on your credit card. I believe that is unacceptable.”
All Canadians need to stand against the Trudeau-controlled Stats Canada’s scheme to take our info
Government agencies are supposed to serve the Canadian people, not take our information without permission.
Stats Canada was once a trusted agency, but they are now transforming into a dangerously unaccountable and dishonest bureaucracy.
And unfortunately, this scandal now calls all of their data and info into question. If they’re willing to take so much from us without asking us, how can we trust anything that they are saying?
