BC's legislation has a one-term limit for Information and Privacy Commissioners. The current Commissioner's term was due to run out on August 15, 2005. To work around this, current Commissioner David Loukidelis has been named as "acting Commissioner" until the BC government gets a successor or amends the legislation. In any event, David is very well regarded within the privacy community and any additional time at the helm will be welcomed.
