Striking the Balance: Privacy and Freedom of Expression in a Digital Age
April 4, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm$29 – $49
A half-day symposium exploring the right to be forgotten
The so-called right to be forgotten is coming to Canada. Earlier this year, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner released a draft policy claiming the right for individuals to remove certain search engine results already exists within current privacy laws. Should Canadians welcome a version of this European law? Or are the trade-offs for Charter-protected access to information too great? Explore the intersection of reputation and freedom of expression at a half-day summit featuring privacy experts, the tech industry and journalism leaders as they explore the implications for Canada.
