AggregateIQ will not face financial penalties in Canada after investigation finds it broke privacy laws - 2019-11-26
A small B.C. company involved in a scandal that saw the personal information of millions of voters illicitly collected for the purpose of shaping political events around the world will not face financial penalties in Canada for its misuse of data.
A joint investigation by the privacy commissioners of British Columbia and Canada concluded AggregateIQ (AIQ) broke domestic privacy laws, shaking Canadians' confidence in the political campaign system.
But BC Privacy Commissioner Michael McEvoy expressed frustration that he could not levy a fine, unlike regulators in the United States and the European Union.
