U.S. Compromises Canadian Privacy
A Canadian reporter was able to get phone records for the personal and professional accounts held by Canadian Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart through an American data broker, locatecell.com. The security concerns are obvious.
Canada has an exception in the privacy laws that allows newspapers to do this type of investigative reporting. My guess is that's the only reason we haven't seen an American reporter pull phone records on one of our government officials.
