Data Protection Bill Progress

One question (another on Monday:)

Is this law tight enough to discourage a scenario in which we are subject
to foreign laws (and parties) to access, say IEBC data?

*Data sovereignty (Canadian comments)*
publications.gc.ca/collections/collection_2018/sct-tbs/BT22-213-2018-eng.pdf

Regardless of where the cloud resources are physically located, when data
is stored in a cloud environment, the stored data may be subject to the
laws of other countries. As previously mentioned, CSPs (Cloud Service
Providers) are hyper-scale providers that have global deployment. A CSP
with foreign operations could be required to comply with a warrant, court
order or subpoena request from a foreign law enforcement agency seeking to
obtain GC data. This means that Canada cannot ensure full sovereignty over
its data when it stores data in the cloud. Lack of full data sovereignty
has the potential to damage the GC and third parties. Sensitive GC
data could be subject to foreign laws and be disclosed to another
government. Under some foreign laws, disclosure of GC data could take place
without notice to the GC.
