Quebec residents can now freeze their credit files

Public service announcement: Quebec residents can now freeze their credit
files with the two credit bureaus operating in Canada: Equifax and
TransUnion.

I wrote an oped about this issue that got published by the Montreal Gazette
a month ago:

Also, early this year I started https://idtheftreform.ca/, which is an
effort to bring together people to push for legislative changes in Canada
regarding ID theft laws, which to my mind (coming from Europe) place a heavy
burden on the victims to defend themselves, when most of the time the cause
is a banking / credit institution not checking documentation as thoroughly
as they should.
