A study in selective Conservative outrage over individual privacy.

So here’s what I don’t get. According to the Conservatives, the mandatory long form census was a tyrannical thing for merely having the possible penalty of sending Canadians to jail for refusing to fill it out (despite the fact no one has been sent to jail over not filling it out since it was started in 1656 in New France). Besides, this was a much too intrusive document on Canadians privacy.

On the other hand, a Cabinet minister getting access to a critic’s medical records didn’t raise a red flag with either the Minister or the Conservative government in general that is supposed to be so concerned about individuals privacy?

Apparently, IOKIYAC (It’s Ok If You’re A Conservative) to ignore that.
