    Earlier in the day, Chief Statistician Anil Arora defended the plans to obtain Canadians’ detailed banking records, stating, “traditional statistics gathering methods are no longer sufficient to accurately measure Canada’s economy and social changes,” Mr. Arora wrote in a statement posted on the agency’s Twitter account. “It is our duty to leverage the best methods and sources to provide facts to Canadians when they need it while providing the highest level of protection of privacy and confidentiality.
   The Conservatives dismissed those assurances, pointing out that cybersecurity breaches often occur at government departments and private companies.
   Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said critics are simply fear-mongering and accused the Conservatives of creating “scary stories to frighten Canadians” about Big Brother-style surveillance.
