The ruling will prompt Google to take stronger measures to protect personal information in Canada. At the same time, it also means that Google will face new challenges in the field of Internet search in Canada.Because it accounts for more than 75% of the Canadian Internet search market.

The judge saidGoogle search does not collect, use or disclose personal information for the purpose of 'news reporting', and if any, it is not entirely for that purpose.

According to the report, the ruling triggered a discussion on the "right to be forgotten". (note: refers to people asking their personal information not to be searched on the Internet.)

Valerie Lawton, a spokesman for the Canadian Privacy Commissioner's office, said he was glad that the court agreed with their position because it made it clearGoogle's search engine service is regulated by the Federal Privacy Act..
