Pawnbroker vows to fight Edmonton bylaw requiring handing over customer information

An Edmonton pawnbroker says he will not back down from his fight against a new bylaw that requires vendors of second-hand goods to transmit personal information on customers to a central database. He has complained to the Alberta Privacy Commissioner and expects a public hearing in due course. See: - Edmonton News - Pawnbroker won't quit privacy fight.

This isn't a new fight. I've blogged about similar bylaws here before:

The broker might be doing some illegal work for which reason he don't want to give all the details as the details might let him to face problems. This is a nice rule made now people can invest in pawn shops with out any hesitation.
