Karim Ganame recently asked Le Journal de Montréal for his opinion on the million-dollar contract that Ottawa has allegedly signed with the controversial surveillance firm Palantir.
“I’m skeptical,” he stated. The government's lack of transparency regarding the information being collected by Palantir is very concerning. "What are they doing with this information?” he asked. “The government should be transparent and tell us what it's for.”
