The Alberta Courts have once again issued a stunning decision regarding privacy laws in that province. In this case, United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 401 v. Alberta (Information and Privacy Commissioner), 2011 ABQB 415 (CanLII), the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench has determined that portions of the Personal Information Protection Act (Alberta) (“PIPA”) are unconstitutional.
Read about the case and ruling on Canadian Privacy Law Blog. David said he would be surprised if the Alberta government doesn’t appeal this decision. I hope they do, as it would seem to weaken privacy protections significantly.
