The Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the Citizen Lab’s Chris Parsons announced they are suing the crown in the Ontario Superior Court. Challenging sections of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), the applicants demand it be struck down as unconstitutional.

The lawsuit was covered in a story on VICE’s Motherboard.

“CCLA believes that our current privacy legislation, PIPEDA, has not kept pace with modern technology, because it enables too much information sharing by the private sector to government, and that it may have significant and adverse impacts on people’s lives,” a CCLA statement reads.
