According to reports, Canada's Privacy Commissioner, Bruce Phillips, has criticised a national database held by his country's Human Resources department, as "tantamount to a citizen profile".

The reports suggest the database maintains a dossier on almost every person in Canada, with as many as 2,000 pieces of information about each person's education, marital status, ethnic origin, disabilities etc.

What do you think? Tell the Mailroom. And read what others have said.
