A Green Party candidate in Quebec called leader Annamie Paul “a disgrace” in a Facebook post Friday afternoon, the latest attack from within the party directed at the embattled leader.

Dalila Elhak, who is running under the Green banner in Beauport–Limoilou, said in French that she intends to launch a leadership run with the hope of eventually replacing Paul.

“This person is a disgrace to the Green Party, and it was not for nothing that she was asked to resign,” a translated version of the post reads.

A spokesperson for the Green Party said they weren’t offering any comment at this time.

In an interview with CBC Calgary News at 6 host Andrew Brown on Friday, Paul expressed disappointment with the post.

“I’m very sorry to hear that — that’s extremely unbecoming of any candidate for our party,” she said.

“I’m trying to do what is most important right now, which is to try to get Greens elected all over the country … that’s my focus at least.”

Elhak’s post links to an article about an incident on Thursday in which Paul accidentally endorsed the Liberal Party’s plan on climate change during a speech. Both Paul and her campaign later clarified that she had misspoken.

In an email to CBC News, Elhak expressed dissatisfaction with Paul’s leadership in a number of areas, and said that Paul is focusing too much on campaigning in Toronto Centre — the riding she’s running in.

“After the election campaign began, Annamie decided to abandon the Green candidates across the country to focus on her own campaign in Toronto Centre,” Elhak said.

Elhak also cited Paul’s mistake during the speech.

“Regarding her slip, it is her subconscious that spoke to confirm that she is not in the right place,” she said. “It is ironic that we are in the middle of the campaign, we have 17 days left to promote our program and the leader of the Greens is calling on voters to vote for the Liberals and their $ 4 billion pipeline.”

In her Facebook post, Elhak goes on to say she will seek the leadership and communicate exclusively in French. She also ran for the Greens in the riding in the 2015 and 2019 federal elections.

It’s the latest internal setback for Paul, who spent months before the campaign trying to fend off attempts from some factions of the party to remove her as leader. The back-and-forth between Paul and her detractors began when former Green MP Jenica Atwin crossed the floor to the Liberals in June, and the party’s federal council even discussed revoking Paul’s membership

Updating Special Ad Audiences for housing, employment, and credit advertisers

Published

By

updating-special-ad-audiences-for-housing,-employment,-and-credit-advertisers

On June 21, 2022 we announced an important settlement with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that will change the way we deliver housing ads to people residing in the US. Specifically, we are building into our ads system a method designed to make sure the audience that ends up seeing a housing ad more closely reflects the eligible targeted audience for that ad.

As part of this agreement, we will also be sunsetting Special Ad Audiences, a tool that lets advertisers expand their audiences for ad sets related to housing. We are choosing to sunset this for employment and credit ads as well. In 2019, in addition to eliminating certain targeting options for housing, employment and credit ads, we introduced Special Ad Audiences as an alternative to Lookalike Audiences. But the field of fairness in machine learning is a dynamic and evolving one, and Special Ad Audiences was an early way to address concerns. Now, our focus will move to new approaches to improve fairness, including the method previously announced.

What’s happening: We’re removing the ability to create Special Ad Audiences via Ads Manager beginning on August 25, 2022.

Beginning October 12th, 2022, we will pause any remaining ad sets that contain Special Ad Audiences. These ad sets may be restarted once advertisers have removed any and all Special Ad Audiences from those ad sets. We are providing a two month window between preventing new Special Ad Audiences and pausing existing Special Ad Audiences to enable advertisers the time to adjust budgets and strategies as needed.

Introducing an Update to the Data Protection Assessment

Published

on

By

introducing-an-update-to-the-data-protection-assessment

Over the coming year, some apps with access to certain types of user data on our platforms will be required to complete the annual Data Protection Assessment. We have made a number of improvements to this process since our launch last year, when we introduced our first iteration of the assessment.

The updated Data Protection Assessment will include a new developer experience that is enhanced through streamlined communications, direct support, and clear status updates. Today, we’re sharing what you can expect from these new updates and how you can best prepare for completing this important privacy requirement if your app is within scope.

If your app is in scope for the Data Protection Assessment, and you’re an app admin, you’ll receive an email and a message in your app’s Alert Inbox when it’s time to complete the annual assessment. You and your team of experts will then have 60 calendar days to complete the assessment. We’ve built a new platform that enhances the user experience of completing the Data Protection Assessment. These updates to the platform are based on learnings over the past year from our partnership with the developer community. When completing the assessment, you can expect:

  • Streamlined communication: All communications and required actions will be through the My Apps page. You’ll be notified of pending communications requiring your response via your Alerts Inbox, email, and notifications in the My Apps page.

    Note: Other programs may still communicate with you through the App Contact Email.

  • Available support: Ability to engage with Meta teams via the Support tool to seek clarification on the questions within the Data Protection Assessment prior to submission and help with any requests for more info, or to resolve violations.

    Note: To access this feature, you will need to add the app and app admins to your Business Manager. Please refer to those links for step-by-step guides.

  • Clear status updates: Easy to understand status and timeline indicators throughout the process in the App Dashboard, App Settings, and My Apps page.
  • Straightforward reviewer follow-ups: Streamlined experience for any follow-ups from our reviewers, all via developers.facebook.com.

We’ve included a brief video that provides a walkthrough of the experience you’ll have with the Data Protection Assessment:

The Data Protection Assessment elevates the importance of data security and helps gain the trust of the billions of people who use our products and services around the world. That’s why we are committed to providing a seamless experience for our partners as you complete this important privacy requirement.

Here is what you can do now to prepare for the assessment:

  1. Make sure you are reachable: Update your developer or business account contact email and notification settings.
  2. Review the questions in the Data Protection Assessment and engage with your teams on how best to answer these questions. You may have to enlist the help of your legal and information security points of contact to answer some parts of the assessment.
  3. Review Meta Platform Terms and our Developer Policies.

We know that when people choose to share their data, we’re able to work with the developer community to safely deliver rich and relevant experiences that create value for people and businesses. It’s a privilege we share when people grant us access to their data, and it’s imperative that we protect that data in order to maintain and build upon their trust. This is why the Data Protection Assessment focuses on data use, data sharing and data security.

Data privacy is challenging and complex, and we’re dedicated to continuously improving the processes to safeguard user privacy on our platform. Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to build a safer, more sustainable platform.
