Politicians in Ottawa want to question Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg after a watchdog found Facebook Inc. violated Canadian privacy law -- but it’s unclear if they’ll ever get the chance.

The demand comes ahead of a May 28 meeting, to be hosted in Canada, of the International Grand Committee on Disinformation and ‘Fake News.’
