Veterans Call For Inquiry Into Complaints
PRIVACY—CANADANovember 15, 2012
The Canadian Press reports on veterans’ calls for inquiries into complaints of alleged privacy violations. After the veterans ombudsman received nine complaints in the last five years, seven of which were referred to the privacy commissioner, Veterans Harold Leduc and Tom Hoppe are calling for investigations by both the ombudsman and Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart on their filed complaints. A citizens’ group has demanded a public inquiry, alleging that privacy violations at Veterans Affairs targeted advocates.
