Privacy Breach - Credit Monitoring Confusion

When 583,000 former students in this country found out a few weeks ago that their personal data was lost on a portable hard drive, the outrage was loud and immediate. Today, the Canadian government came out to say it will take care of six years of credit flagging for those former students. But, there's still confusion about what kind of monitoring the federal government will provide. CBC's Pat Martel spoke to Alyson Queen, the Press Secretary for Human Resources and Skills Development Canada Minister Diane Finley. He also talked with Amanda Thoy of Charlottetown. She's one of the hundreds of Prince Edward Islanders with student loans worried about the fate of their private information.
