“This is your private financial information. It belongs to you, not the government.”
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer slammed Justin Trudeau’s attempt through Stats Canada to access the private financial information of the Canadian People.
In a video, Scheer called it an “unbelievable assault on your financial privacy.”
“This is your private financial information. It belongs to you, not the government,” said Scheer.
“The government has a responsibility to protect your personal information, not to take it without your consent,” added Scheer.
Scheer’s video can be watched below:
Your personal financial info belongs to you, not the government. It’s stunning that Justin Trudeau keeps defending harvesting Canadians’ line-by-line banking details. As Prime Minister I will put a stop to this, and get the government out of the bank accounts of the nation. pic.twitter.com/FYJvfW2dic
