Friday September 29
The Theatre at UBC Robson Square Campus
BC’s Freedom of Information Act, passed in 1992, was designed to make BC’s government more open and accountable. That was the theory then; what is the reality today? Has FOI really made the government more transparent and accountable? Has it empowered citizens? Is government really more open than it was fourteen years ago?
The first BC Information Summit brings together academics, legal experts, journalists, present and past elected officials and experienced Freedom of Information requesters from every sector of society. Together, they shall explore the challenges and solutions of creating an open government and a free flow of information to the public.
