Correction to National Post article

October 3, 2001


 

An article in the National Post (Freedom shouldn't be price of terrorist fight: privacy boss; Protection urged for fundamental human rights, October 2, 2001) incorrectly quoted the Privacy Commissioner as saying "terrorists who have established themselves here over time would probably be able to get an ID card and show it on demand, though it would identify their occupation as 'terrorist'." In order to provide clarification and avoid any confusion, Canadians should be aware that what the Commissioner said was that an ID card "wouldn't identify their occupation as 'terrorist'"-a very important distinction.

Commissioner's speech, in its entirety.
