Complaint to OIPC re BC Government posting individual FOI requests

On May 18, 2016, FIPA and the BC Civil Liberties Association filed a complaint with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of BC relating to their investigation  into “the disclosure of details of active freedom of information requests on the Open Information website.”

We point to a number of issues with the BC government’s seemingly out-of-the-blue announcement that it intends to begin posting summaries of active FOI requests on its Open Information website beginning this Friday, May 20.
