For the week of Oct. 24, 2021:
With so many health, environment and economic challenges facing Premier John Horgan, the NDP chose to attack the public’s right to know.
Just in time for the anniversary of his pandemic election victory.
Major amendments to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act in Bill 22 propose charging fees to access public records and excluding the Office of the Premier from disclosing any documents.
On this edition, hear former NDP Attorney General Colin Gabelmann, the “father” of B.C.’s FOI law, and veteran investigative reporter Salim Jiwa. They both say Horgan is making a big mistake.
Plus commentary and Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
