Federal Information Commissioner Annual Report

Federal Information Commissioner John Reid issued his most recent annual report to Parliament yesterday.

The Commissioner is an independent ombudsman appointed by Parliament to investigate complaints that the government has denied rights under Canada’s freedom of information legislation.

His message: large parts of the Canadian federal public service unfortunately continue to drag their feet, ignore access to information request deadlines, frequently conduct business orally to frustrate the public's right to know, and basically cover up. Mr. Reid is not a happy guy.
