Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The Government of Canada has broken the laws that cover our right to Privacy (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), by authorizing Statistics Canada to collect the personal financial and banking information and history from Canadian Banks and Credit Bureaus for 500,000 citizens and residents;
  • The Government has no right to our private financial information and this act is both illegal and immoral; and
  • The Government of Canada and Statistics Canada do not have the right to this information without our signed authorization per the Privacy Act.
We, the undersigned, Taxpayers of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to cease and desist collection of information of Canadian Citizens’ private financial affairs, and demand that the Government of Canada put an immediate end to Statistics Canada compelling Canadian financial institutions and credit bureaus from transferring any financial information from any taxpayer (detailed or otherwise) to Statistics Canada.
