The Supreme Court of Canada has stated that the Privacy Act has “quasi-constitutional status”, and that the values and rights set out in the Act are closely linked to those set out in the Constitution as being necessary to a free and democratic society.

The Privacy Act, like the Charter, limits the powers of the state, not private enterprise and citizens. The Privacy Act has been ruled as quasi-constitutional by the Supreme Court, along with a few other pieces of federal legislation. This has a specific meaning in law, but does not mean they are Constitutional.

For the assimilation and sharing of information on private citizens by corporate and other private entities (as opposed to the state), the Charter and the Privacy Act are likely ineffective tools. It would be up to Parliament to regulate limits on corporate and private entities, and they have not shown much interest in doing so. It might requrie some careful crafting but they could stick it in the new part of the the Criminal Code for cyberbullying.

Not sure about Alberta, but generally doxxing is legal if the information was not obtained illegally, and you are only doxxing (as opposed to also counselling others to harrass or otherwise harm the doxxed person). Of course you may run afoul of social media platform rules ( as in this case) and open yourself to civil liability, which appears to be the best remedy for the doxxed right now.

Ahh, that's the moral compass we expect of a guy who gives national secrets to biker gangs.


That hot French biker chick he was with really needs to be thanked for exposing Bernier as the total twat he is. 8)


Apparently, Couillard may be derived from the Old French word for testicle. She was memorable. Shortly after the famous incident, I went sailing near Montreal with a guy called Couillard whose wife was a Bernier.

This is me, kicking you in the couilles... we still use it, probably more often than we should.
