City policy blamed for FOI mess

Secretive policies lead to Freedom of Information issue

Re: City seeks limits on requests for information (News, Sept. 28)

This is an outrage. If the city didn’t have such a secretive policy, the media wouldn’t have to go to these lengths to get this information.

What doublespeak by Marianne Alto.

And I heard the mayor on CFAX dancing around this issue, calling it the non-politicization of information.

What a crock. And the reporter just went along.

And yeah, staff didn’t inform council about this.

If staff are doing these things on their own hook, why does Fortin feel he has to defend them?
