Toronto Star: Privacy chief eyes U.S. border

A Toronto Star article by Tara Perkins includes:

Philippa Lawson, a lawyer and executive director of the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic, is asking a court to overturn the Privacy Commissioner Office's finding that it did not have the jurisdiction to investigate a complaint against a U.S.-based website that was selling personal information about Canadians.
Court documents filed by Lawson say "this case is about the scope of Canadians' legal privacy protection when a commercial organization with a foreign business address reaches into Canada to collect personal information about Canadians and discloses that information to other Canadians."
