Report Suggests Toronto Library Should Handle Data Governance for Projects Like Quayside

Interesting idea by the Toronto Region Board of Trade regarding Sidewalk Labs’ project.

The library should be tasked with creating a data hub that protects personal privacy and provides opportunities for economic growth, including policies and protocols for the collection and use of data. … It recommends that enforcement of the policies, however, be handled by the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario and include the ability to impose fines, which would require that the province expand the commissioner’s powers.

Also, good profile of Toronto privacy advocate Bianca Wylie.
