WASHINGTON – Industry Minister James Moore says he would consider supporting a bill that would give Canadians the right to be forgotten on the Internet.

Moore said Wednesday privacy and security on the Internet is a priority and he would consider supporting a private members bill giving Canadians the right to have their private communications and other records permanently erased.
