I dont see the big deal insofar as what on earth are we doing that needs to
be hidden from NZ jurisdiction? We have nothing to hide - isnt that the
problem, that our archives are not hidden? :p
I agree with the newspaper anology to a large degree - you cant change the
past, even if its stored electronically and therefore is *able* to be modified.
The only exception I would make was in the case of excessively libelious
comments.. Where only the facts are recorded, it shouldnt be that big a deal?
Im not sure if I should ask the question 'who reads our archives anyway?'
because i'll probably find theres a lot of closet NZNOG'rs out there.. :)

I am not sure quite what the position is wrt persons from outside Canadian
jurisdiction but Canadian law may be more likely to accommodate concerned NZ
citizens with info held on them in Canada than vice versa, as I understand
