Sorry for the very light writing this last week. I had a crazy week, flying to Ottawa, Toronto and St. John's. I'm back and blogging ...
The Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic is reporting that the Canadian Federation of Students is objecting to the possible outsourcing of the administration of the Canadian student loan system to an American company. The objection is based on privacy fears connected with the USA Patriot Act.
Students demand protection from US anti-terror laws:
"The Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) is urging the federal government to protect the privacy of students by retaining management of Canada's multi-billion dollar student loan program. If this contract is outsourced to US-linked organizations, student loan information will be accessible to US security agencies, who have virtually unrestricted rights to access this information for counter-terrorism purposes, in secret, under the US PATRIOT Act."
