Congratulations to CrimSL PhD candidate Daniel Konikoff (Supv. Professor Beatrice Jauregui), who is now working at the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) as Interim Director of the Privacy, Technology and Surveillance program.
The first thing that he worked on after starting the position is a written submission from CCLA to the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs regarding Bill C-47, an Act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament. CCLA is responding to Division 39, a section of the bill which proposes amendments to the Canada Elections Act that would further entrench political parties’ exclusion from meaningful national privacy legislation.
