CHRC: Freedom of Information is Not a Right

The Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation has been rebuffed many times by the CHRC in their efforts to access details on the reporting discrepancies of Commissioner Jennifer Lynch’s expenses. After three requests for information in August 2009 were effectively stonewalled by the CHRC for months, the Information Commissioner has now deemed the CHRC to have “placed itself in a position of deemed refusal“.

We will soon find out the consequences, if any, that government agencies will have to bear when they flout Freedom of Information requests.
