Questioning Facebook Regarding the Cambridge Analytica Scandal

Watch parliamentary committee footage of Nate questioning Facebook officials about the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Facebook officials appeared before the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics – of which I am Vice-Chair – to answer questions regarding the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the extent of privacy breaches for Canadians.

In answer to my questions, Facebook officials acknowledged that old company practices were insufficient, and testified that private messages may have been inappropriately shared when 272 Canadians accessed an app and gave the app developer access to the user profiles of over 620,000 Canadians.

Asking questions at committee makes me feel like a lawyer again.
