Who polices political parties' privacy practices? Nobody.

The recent minor scandal resulting from the Immigration Minister's mass e-mailing to members of the LGBT community has again focused attention on the fact that Canadian political parties are beyond the jurisdiction of Canada's public sector and private sector privacy laws.

See: Political parties operate outside Canada's privacy laws - Politics - CBC News.

This is not the first time that this gap has been noticed. Check out a few of the past examples from this blog by clicking the "political parties" tag.
