Sharing of personal information as part of the Draft Multicultural Strategic Outreach Plan: Government of British Columbia and the BC Liberal Party
Elizabeth Denham - Information and Privacy Commissioner of BC August 1, 2013
There is an inherent potential for overlap of duties between certain government jobs, such as those individuals that work in minister’s offices and within the Office of the Premier, and with the governing party. This overlap makes it imperative that government and the BC Liberal Party provide training on, and ensure sufficient employee awareness of the privacy and access issues that can arise in such positions. My investigation indicates that government and the BC Liberal Party are not providing sufficient training to individuals within these roles and are therefore creating a substantial risk of misuse of personal information.
I also believe that government is not effectively communicating to its employees the potential contraventions under FIPPA that occur when an individual sends information regarding government business to a personal email account. Further, the use of personal email accounts for government business can create the impression that government employees are attempting to evade access to information obligations and can create practical problems for government’s ability to retrieve emails from personal email accounts.
The BC Liberal Party implementation of their Multicultural Strategic Outreach Plan could have no better setting to grab prospective voters attention than in the social safety nets that are there to help those in need @ 620 Royal Avenue, New Westminster, BC
What are the chances for a relatively new business finding the perfect setting to work with those in need? Was there insider help?

BC Liberals 'Ethnic Lens': Christy again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it.
What’s inside ‘the ethnic lens'?
Incorporating slum-dwelling migrants in
Dr Giovanni Picker
The main conclusion is the that ethnic lens is not a static, de-contextualized object, but a particular prism that is constructed through situated forms of knowledge, assumptions, lay theories that are continually being produced and imposed about particular groups of migrants in particular cities. Looking inside them is noteworthy because these situated forms of knowledge do not only strongly influence the local structures of migrants’ opportunity but they also shape, and are in turn mutually shaped by, categories of analysis.
This was the case in Turin, where slum-dwelling migrants in 2010 were addressed by governance actors representing them as either morally good (prone to work and get out of marginality) or morally bad (deviant or potentially criminal) and aiming to help them find a ‘normal’ place in the local society. That polarization, as I showed, follows a racializing logic, thus it can be seen as the result of wearing a ‘racial lens’.
