Just as I said at the beginning of this horror, it was nothing but a trial balloon floated out there in the hopes that Cdns were asleep at the switch and wouldn't care if their private info was stolen without permission aforehand. Thanks again to the Bank that leaked the demand letter from StatsCan.

I see by the above link that they are still amending Privacy Laws (read "tinkering" ) so that privacy snatching by any or all government-created creatures is made legal. Authoritarian! It is akin to a holdup gangster holding a gun to your head. You will be helpless to prevent any and all his demands; your hands will be tied behind your back.

Sign and share the Petition. (Now at 20,600).

Show this rotten filthy sneaky underhanded dishonorable government that we are NOT sheeple!

Question: Will Statistics Canada retain a master file with your name associated to your transactions?

Answer: Yes.

The pressure is mounting and getting louder. Why does StatsCan need so much private info? Do Cdns fill only two purposes? One to be taxed and the other to supply the Statistics machine?

What's more disturbing is that they have prolly already gotten the info, now they do the dance " hey it's legal"
It's like living with evil Bug Overlords.

Cash. The last stand for privacy.
Oh wait, cash is being phased out, one way or another.
First the penny, I mean who cares right?
And then the 1,000 bill, who uses those?
But just watch.

Don'r panic as it has all ready been put on hold while they check the legalities of it.

Let's hope privacy wins.

Which ones? A query to my bank has been ignored. The RCMP need a warrant to obtain information from a Bank but it seems Stats Can and Revenue Canada are above the law, much like Trudeau and all Liberals.

It is easy to see this is all Trudeau's idea. 500,000 financial live this year, add another 500,000 next year and 1,000,000 the year after. He, like every other dictator, wants to control our very lives and make decisions for us. A reminder - shortly after being elected, he brought in Bail In legislation which allows Banks that claim they are failing to seize all our money and issue bank shares. Those shares won't buy groceries. He will also likely make cash illegal, allowing him and his Liberals to watch every dime we spend. He is deliberately destroying the economy of Western Canada.

If Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba separate, BC is screwed. It will be isolated from the rest of Canada.

Trudeau is dangerous. Trudeau is offensive.

Pennies are useless. They cost millions each year as they aren’t worth the metal they’re minted in. If you make minimum wage, bending down to pick up a penny is literally not even worth your time.

It took quite a while for Dan Albas to weigh in on StatsCan thievery of our private banking data

The Petition is at 22,000 signatures. Please sign and pass it on if you haven't already

https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Peti ... ion=e-1920

Even though the Privacy Commissioner is having a look at this it is a worry that should the worst case scenario happen (JT wins next election) JT's gov't will revisit and force through StatsCan's original intent. The pressure must be consistent, loud and a resounding majority in favor of scrapping identifiers attached to our private info.

StatsCan still unable to come up with a good reason why identifiers are needed. If you read Albas' comments it appears that StatsCan would be able to target specific neighbourhoods for second user marketing (or scams).

To elaborate: As your data is collected line by line it can be determined where you shop for groceries how much you spend, your visits to liquor stores, how much you spend at pharmacies and which ones, pet food expenditures and on and on. This would be a goldmine to a hackers and scammers in event of security breaches.

Good news for Canadians!

The Senate is now reviewing StatsCan fiasco and STRONGLY recommends:

A) PERMISSION be gained from individuals prior to their private banking info goes to StatScam

B) all identifiers be removed PRIOR to that info being handed over.

See what can happen when public rage catches fire?

It is a sorry state that this is how we have to fight our government.

^^Beats what they've had to resort to in France. It will be interesting to see if the momentum can continue and spread to other areas where our government has been utterly tone deaf to Canadians.
