We at @ICLMG spoke out against the new Entry/Exit program, which is now coming into force. It allows Canada Border Services to collect the information of everyone who leaves Canada by land to the US cbc.ca/news/canada/br…
@ICLMG The new rules means Canada will be collecting and retaining new information about millions of travellers to the US every year. This raises serious concerns about how this information it protected, and how it may be used (or misused). #cdnpoli 2/5
We raised questions about why this new information has become necessary, why it must be held onto for up to 15 years, and with whom the information can be shared (CSIS, RCMP, even foreign governments/agencies). Find out more here: iclmg.ca/canada-not-col… #cdnpoli 3/5
(And a note that there's what seems to be an error in the CBC piece. The new entry/exit program doesn't allow the US government to collect more information about people traveling to the US from Canada. The US already collects all this information - and more. 4/5
What it allows is for US border control to send information about people entering the US from Canada back to Canada Border Services, for the Canadian govt to hold onto. This will allow Canada to now track - in near real time - everyone who leaves Canada to the US by land) 5/5
