Are you still feeling comfortable that "all your private information is strictly confidential?

I suspect a few people such as former PM Chretien and writer Margaret Atwood are not NEARLY as comfortable!

Detailed tax information about the private lives of hundreds of Canadians — many of them rich and famous — was sent to CBC News by Canada's tax agency in a major privacy breach.

The highly confidential details, including home addresses of taxpayers and the value of tax credits they were granted, are contained in a copy of a Canada Revenue Agency spreadsheet covering the years 2008 to 2013.

The 18 pages include information on donations made by such Canadian luminaries as author Margaret Atwood, former prime minister Jean Chrétien, grocery magnate Frank Sobey, cartoonist Lynn Johnston, pollster Allan Gregg, financier Stephen Bronfman, former CBC executive Richard Stursberg, Olympics chief Richard Pound and many others.

"Letting confidential figures slip that way, is very sloppy … I'm sure they didn't do it on purpose," Atwood told CBC on Tuesday.

From CBC News.

True enough. There is nothing WE can do about it. But - I am glad that the people who can affect maybe little bits of change are looking into - and exposing - these deficiencies!

Absolute breach of privacy. I don't buy that they would give out information and not realize that they were doing something they shouldn't. That is BS.
