http://www.privcom.gc.ca/fs-fi/02_05_d_01_e.asp A Day in the Life; Or, How to Help Build your Super File Adapted from the  Privacy Commissioner's Annual Report: 1995-1996 , with the permission  of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.      Nothing to hide? That's just as well. From when we get up in the morning until we climb into bed at  night, we leave a trail of data behind us - for others to collect, merge, analyse, massage and even  sell, often without our knowledge or consent. And in most of Canada (except for Quebec), there is  no law against it.  Here are some examples of the electronic trails we leave during a hypothetical day:  8:30 a.m - You exit your apartment parking lot   Cameras, and possibly a card, record your departure. 8:35 - Pull onto a toll highway   A device records your entry and exit points, in order to send you a bill at the end of the month. 8:42 - Caught in a traffic jam, you call work to delay a meeting   Cellular phone calls can easily be intercepted, and new personal telephones will signal your  whereabouts to satellites to deliver calls. 9:17 - Enter office parking lot   Card records your entry and its time; automatic cameras monitor the garage. 9:20 - Enter main office/plant door
