Ca: Sarnia IC apologizes for privacy breach, says he won’t resign

Oh, oops! Cathy Dobson reports:

Sarnia Integrity Commissioner Paul Watson has apologized for publicly displaying confidential information during a Zoom presentation to city council Monday.

“I am a 60-year-old trying to use technology during a pandemic and I made an unfortunate mistake,” said Watson. “I’m very sad about it and sorry for those individuals whose privacy was breached.

“Any breach of privacy is serious and all I can do at this point is apologize.”

Watson said the “share screen” function on his computer somehow displayed a page that identified the names of seven Sarnia residents who had filed complaints to his office about questionable behaviour at City Hall.
