Group Calling for FOI Reform

In a press release that just came out from the Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA), they are calling for more freedom of information. In light of the current investigations into the federal sponsorship scandal, they are calling for increased transparency of government and are pressing for updated FOI laws.

I like this quote from Anne Kothawala, Pres. & CEO of the CNA:
"Peel away the spectacle of testifying Prime Ministers and what's left is a sordid soap opera in which freedom of information law is routinely flaunted with impunity."
