For the Environment
When people and organizations want to be involved in some of the greatest issues of our time, like climate change, resource management, and environmental protection, access to information provides them with a right to know to address any lack of Transparency.
Bill 22 opens the Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection Act for substantive changes for the first time in over a decade. Unfortunately, if passed, this Bill will undermine access to information and make public bodies less transparent. It is a step backwards for openness and accountability, and a missed opportunity to improve the information rights of British Columbians.
