Summary, etc.:
The internet is a tool for accessing information about others. But once online, those stories live on forever. False or incorrect reports about individuals online can tarnish reputations, damage families and upturn careers. Some countries have legislation to help with that. It’s called the right to be forgotten. But Canada doesn’t have this legislation. And it’s got some people calling for a change so they can erase their past online. But in a country that believes in freedom of speech, is it a double-edged sword? CBC reporter Nick Purdon spoke with two people who would like their messy past erased online.
