Information, Identity Theft and Law 
Driver’s License information, SIN number, credit cards, medical records, banking information, passport…there is a whole identity out there made up of information about you, much of it stored in electronic databases.  If that identity is stolen or your information gets into the wrong hands some other way or the information is wrong, the results can be serious.  This presentation provides a general overview of legal issues related to your information identity:
o   Do you have to give your personal information and, if so, when and to whom?
o   What can you do:  if information is wrong, if somebody gives out information about you when they should not, and if somebody steals your information?
o   Does it make a difference if your information is collected or stored somewhere outside of Alberta or Canada?

 
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
(USA:  Shane Black, 2005), 103 min.
Hosted by Prof. Bob Cousins (New Media)

When a petty thief is mistaken for an actor auditioning for a role in a detective film, it is not long before he is ducking the deadliest babes and bullets La-La Land has to offer.  A hard boiled romp and hilarious whodunit.

Won Empire Award (2006) for Best Thriller.

“A cheerful mess of a pulp-fiction parody, pumped full of laughs.”
