Ca: Opposition wants tougher privacy legislation
From Times & Transcript:
The Liberal government will introduce privacy legislation and prescription drug monitoring legislation in this sitting of the legislature, said Health Minister Mike Murphy.
But the official Opposition says the Liberals are dragging their feet on the privacy issue.
“A year ago next month, the government introduced a bill entitled Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act,” said health critic Margaret-Ann Blaney. “In September of last year, the government introduced a discussion paper entitled Personal Health Information Access and Privacy Legislation.”
“It has been a year in one case and nine months in the other case and nothing has passed into law,” said Blaney.
