Re: On line health information.

The Alberta government joined with IBM years ago in a project known as “data mining” This continues in one form or another today. The information was given to your buddies the insurance companies. That is why people around Pincher Creek find it difficult to buy insurance.

Millions of dollars of Alberta taxpayer money went into a worth while program of hail prevention. When to seed the cloud; when not to. Once completed the program was turned over to your buddies in the insurance business to administrate.

Your record of keeping information about Albertan’s takes second place to the wholesale exploitation of that information for profit for favour.

Who exactly will have access to the information? You have demonstrated a truly incestuous relationship with the insurance companies!

Will the Government again turn this new batch of information over to insurance companies and geo-population groups for market research into store locations; possible test areas for medicines?

I have absolutely no faith in your government to follow a plan in good faith. I can count on a hidden agenda behind chummy words at press conferences.

Some direct answers please!

John Clark
