The Agenda with Steve Paikin asks: how do we protect our right to privacy on
the internet?

  • Steve Paikin and expert guests discuss and debate issues surrounding internet privacy in a special broadcast during mesh, Canada's Web Conference.

TORONTO, May 13 /CNW/ - Are there laws to protect your privacy on the internet? Who enforces these laws? How much information should be shared online? On Tuesday May 18 at 8 pm ET The Agenda with Steve Paikin offers a revealing discussion with experts in the field of internet privacy during mesh, Canada's Web Conference.

Guests include Ann Cavoukian, Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner and one of the leading privacy experts in the world; Mathew Ingram, senior writer at GigaOm, one of the leading technology blog networks; and David Fewer, director of the Samuelson-Glushko Canadian Internet Policy & Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) based at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law.

The debate hosted by Steve Paikin will examine the way that internet companies change the visibility of our private information, and whether users are wrong to be sharing so much information or companies are wrong to be sharing information they don't have the right to share. What happens when a company has control of our personal information, and that company is based in a country with different privacy laws? Once something is posted online, is it too late to start thinking about privacy?

Viewers may watch the broadcast on Tuesday May 18 at 8 pm or watch it in live streaming video at 1:20 pm at For more information on The Agenda with Steve Paikin, please visit href=""> For more information on mesh, please visit href="">
