Canadian Civil Liberties Association sues government over privacy violation

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) is suing all three branches of the Canadian government over privacy violations following the Sidewalk Toronto agreement signed between the Waterfront Toronto and  Alphabet subsidiary Sidewalk Labs to develop a smart city in Toronto. The agreement was expected to be approved or rejected this summer. Nevertheless, the CCLA argues that Waterfront Toronto which is a partnership between the City of Toronto, the Government of Canada, and the Province of Ontario does not have the right jurisdiction to make decisions regarding people’s privacy.
