The Privacy Commissioner has ordered the federal government to stop monitoring Cindy Blackstock.

Blackstock is the well known First Nations child advocate who launched a human rights complaint against the feds over its alleged underfunding of First Nations Child and Family Services.

In return she said Aboriginal Affairs spied on her.

Now the government has been told that it crossed the privacy line.

APTN’s Jorge Barrera has the story.
