Meta-truth on mega-data

Every now and then it's fun to look back at earlier official assurances and compare them to what we know today.

This June 2013 statement by then-Defence Minister Peter MacKay, which I recently re-read while checking some other information, is a good example:
Mega-data is collected only on international, not domestic, communications.
Yes, he really did say mega-data instead of metadata.

But the fun part is re-reading MacKay's statement in the context of this recent revelation. (Further discussion here and here.)
