Canadian Bar resolves to support privacy

The Canadian Bar Association, meeting in Winnipeg, unanimously passed two privacy-related resolutions over the weekend. I'll post the full text of the resolutions when I have a chance, but there is some coverage in Saturday's National Post:

Canadian Bar Association to debate balance between privacy, security

WINNIPEG (CP) - Members of the Canadian Bar Association want the federal government to strengthen privacy laws and ensure that any collection of personal information for security reasons is 'subject to reasonable and attainable objectives.'

Delegates attending this year's annual meeting, which begins Saturday in Winnipeg, will debate two resolutions prepared by the association's privacy law and criminal justice sections. "

I expect a release will be soon posted here:
