[W]hile the government informed my office of its intention to use mobility data, it ultimately declined our offer to review how the data was de-identified and how privacy principles were implemented. The regulator should be able to insist on a proactive audit, where required, to ensure public trust.” - Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien on the federal government tracking Canadians through cell phone data
