The article focuses on Bill C-377 introduced by Russ Hiebert of White Rock-Cloverdale, British Columbia designed to increase transparency and accountability. The Canadian Teachers' Federation (CTF) states that the bill may violate the Privacy Act since it proposes disclosure of personal information. The bill is referred to as a politically motivated attack on association rights of workers and attacks workers' organizational abilities via costly distractions and preoccupations.
