New FIPA study shows BC’s FOI performance is even worse than Info Commissioner’s critical report
May 7th, 2009 12:00am
.
A study released today by FIPA has found that the dire situation of delay and denial outlined by Information and Privacy Commissioner David Loukidelis in February is actually a lot worse.

The new study is called FAILING FOI: How the BC Government flouts the Freedom of Information Act and stonewalls FOI requests. It updates the 2006 FIPA report "Access Denied".

“’Failing FOI’ is a pretty good description of what the government is doing,” said Campaign for Open Government director Darrell Evans. “They improperly deny FOI requests, flout mandatory deadlines, pass requests back and forth between departments, and generally do their best to waste time while keeping information from the people.”
