Op-ed in Toronto Star newspaper

Here's my first oped in the Toronto Star newspaper, one of Canada's best selling dailies. My piece is largely a response to an article by Gillian Hadfield - see here - in which she promotes the notion of 'agile governance' as a way to regulate artificial intelligence; hence my title, which was actually changed from what I originally wanted it to be "Canada needs an FDA for artificial intelligence, not more ‘agile’ governance". Here it is:
"Imagine the following scenario: I’ve invented a new pharmaceutical drug; I think I know its benefits after clandestinely testing its effects using people’s health records; but I can’t say for sure as I’ve not been required to meet any safety criteria".
