Police Association of Ontario hacked by Anonymous

The attack continues the hacktivism over C-51, Canada’s controversial new anti-terrorism bill.
The data dump, which is still available as of this morning, includes some admin information with hashed passwords, as well as user information and 420 members’ information, including first and last name, location, userid, email address, and passwords. A backup member file contains 454 members’ information.
There does not appear to be any statement on the PAO’s web site in response to the attack.
And I’m really beginning to wonder about Canadian news media, as their biggest news outlets do not seem to be reporting on such hacks.
