GDPR: Why is the domain whois information showing a Toronto address?

The personal information shown in the public Whois database (Registrant, Admin and technical contacts) is temporarily obfuscated with that Toronto address since May 25 2018 to be in compliance with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law.
As the domain registration business is global, our provider: Tucows/OpenSRS decided to implement it worldwide.

Your real information is safely stored and preserved for you to access.
The publicly available data will remain shown this way until they finish implementing a new tiered-access system to make sure only legitimate users have access to the real data.

They've announced the new tiered access system of access for September 2018.
