Today’s Ottawa Sun reports that Elections Ontario has lost track of unencrypted, password-free USB tags containing “copies of personal information — gender, birth date and addresses — from 49 of the 107 electoral districts” in Ontario including five in Ottawa and is sort of hoping that nothing much is up with that.
