Christopher Wylie is the whistleblower who exposed how Cambridge Analytica harvested Facebook profiles, and how that data compromised our privacy and was used to influence electoral outcomes.

Next week, he’ll be answering questions from the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics. And the committee members have agreed to put questions from the OpenMedia community on the list.

A selection of the top rated and most relevant questions have now been provided to the committee. Minutes and a video feed of the meeting (Tuesday, May 29, 8:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. EST) will be available here: http://www.ourcommons.ca/DocumentViewer/en/42-1/ETHI/meeting-109/notice

The revelations from the Facebook data scandal has shown the world the incredible scale of how social media companies and data brokers are harvesting and exploiting the personal information of millions of people around the world.1

 

And yet, Facebook executives have said little more than ‘sorry’ over the fact that over 600,000 Canadians had had their privacy compromised.2

 

This scandal has also shown us how Canada’s privacy laws have failed to protect us, and how they have no power to help us prevent something like this from happening again.3

 

With elections in Canada coming up in 2019, we need answers about what happened, and what our government needs to do to stop it from happening again.

 

Ask your question to whistleblower Christopher Wylie in the form above, and help arm us with the information we need to get Canada’s privacy protections fully updated to protect our private data. Please share this page as far and wide as you can!
