My two answers are simple: I think the status quo is not an option. The status quo in Canada today is not sufficient in the digital age, in the upcoming 5G era, and in the era of reflection about the world of financial services, including open financial services. On these two issues, I think we should not be satisfied with the status quo.
That is why we humbly propose the creation of a committee composed of several stakeholders, including citizens, governments, businesses—not just financial institutions, but companies that process data—to reflect on these issues and see if, using examples from other countries around the world, we can continue to be leaders.
As I mentioned in the beginning, I think that in artificial intelligence, Canada is taking an important leadership position in the world. At the same time, we must have the same ambition with regard to personal information and data protection. My answer revolves around these points.
