Take Action to Protect Health Information Privacy in Alberta Some Alberta public services, such as certain genetic tests, are outsourced to U.S-linked service providers, meaning that they too could potentially fall under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Patriot Act. The issue has already been raised in B.C, where on May 28, 2004 the B.C. privacy commissioner announced that he will examine the implications of the U.S. Patriot Act for British Columbians' personal information when that information is gathered by U.S.-linked service providers due to the outsourcing of public services. Now New Democrat M.L.A. Raj Pannu, a member of the Select Special Health Information Act Review Committee, has suggested that the committee request the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta to undertake a similar investigation in Alberta. This is wholly within the powers and jurisdiction of the committee. You can support Pannu's proposal by sending the following email to the privacy commissioner and committee members. It's easy--just send the prepared form letter. ENDS: 2005

Boycott the Canadian Census Test!
Count Me Out of the Lockheed Martin Census
Census Boycott Action Timeline:
Lockheed-Martin, the world's #1 weapons giant, is working on the next Canadian Census. Your tax dollars, and maybe personal info, will go to a non-Canadian corporation that makes landmines, nuclear bombs, and Star Wars missile-defense parts -- weapons Canadians have rejected, with good reason, for decades. And because Lock-Mart is American, George W. Bush might be able to secretly seize Canada's Census data using the U S Patriot Act. Keep our census Canadian and keep our personal information safe. BOYCOTT this preliminary test. It's legal and easy: Just write Vive le Canada across your questionaire in red ink and send it back blank. Say no to war profits and privatization at the same time! ENDS: May 11 2004 (however we may create a boycott of the actual 2006 census starting soon)
