Ca: Conservatives call for release of report on massive Afghan immigration data breach

Evan Dyer reports:

The Conservative Party has written to Privacy Commissioner Philippe Dufresne asking him to speed up his investigation of a federal government data breach that exposed the identities of hundreds of Afghans seeking Canada’s help to escape from the Taliban in October 2021.

Dufresne announced on November 15 of last year that his office would open a formal inquiry into the breach at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

CBC News first reported on the data breach on October 26, 2021.
