Ontario’s privacy commissioner and Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday unveiled a framework of principles they hope will be adopted by internet companies to help increase personal privacy and reduce online crime.

Since when does Bill Gates write laws in Ontario?

Since when the government of Ontario endorse proprietary solutions from single vendors?

Did the IPC pay for consulting from MS? Was there an RFP?

BTW: the ipc.on.ca is full of non-compliant web pages, and character encodings which are proprietary. and the pages do not validate with http://validator.w3.org/


The FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do to protect people’s privacy is to make sure that you never require people to run a single vendor’s computer system. Choice => competition => security.
