BC’s Information and Privacy Commissioner decries public servants’ proposals to weaken the Freedom of Information & Privacy Act

BC Information and Privacy Commissioner David Loukidelis has sent a letter to the BC government decrying proposals for changes to the FOI and privacy act that would “undermine the openness and accountability the government has promised.”

The letter was sent to a Special Committee of the Legislature that is conducting a review of the Act. It fires a broadside against a set of proposals submitted by public servants who are chafing under the Act’s requirements to disclose information to the public.

The letter may be viewed on the Commissioner’s website
