Aleecia,

This comment from you concerns me:

"...the Canadian view is very simple. Tracking of the sort we discuss in DNT is simply illegal. Putting user choice and control around it makes no sense; companies must just stop breaking Canadian laws."

When you wrote "illegal," what Canadian laws/legislation were you referring to exactly?  I'm not aware of these laws, and I've just checked with industry legal counsel in Canada to be sure.  But certainly, if the good industry folks in Canada are "breaking Canadian laws" as you assert here in this very public forum, I think they deserve to understand the substance of your not so veiled accusations.  Please advise.

Rigo-- this unfortunate example illustrates my earlier point perfectly.  People in the current working group THINK they are representing other global stake holders adequately, when in fact those stake holders being "represented" would be shocked to learn that they are in fact, not represented well at all.  Please either change the name of the group and the goals of the initiative to reflect it's current makeup, or get the right folks in the room.

Chris
