Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien has done a thorough review of the government's anti-terrorism bill. His analysis has revealed several areas of concern. The Commissioner says under C-51, the threshold for sharing Canadians' personal data is far too low and he says the bill sets no clear limits on how long the information would be kept.

Therrien tells The House's Evan Solomon that he would be deeply concerned if the bill passed in its current form.
