Hot on the heels of Telus' transparency report, SaskTel has also released its very first transparency report [PDF] on government data demands.
It's worth giving the report a look, and noting that SaskTel is the only telco in Canada that is also subject to a public sector privacy law that has very broad latitude for data disclosure to law enforcement.
Here are the numbers:
General – Listed Customer Name and Address 1,582
Court order 4,139
Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (excluding child sexual exploitation) 896
Federal/provincial government formal demands 233
Emergency requests 718
Emergency requests - after-hours by operator services 3,993
Child sexual exploitation 49
Requests denied 247
It's also worth noting that SaskTel says they have changed their practices in response to the R. v. Spencer case.
