Is always screaming about those secretive, controlling Conservatives... turns out they're not so forthcoming themselves...
The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. is behind an unprecedented flood of complaints to Canada's information watchdog. The latest annual report from Information Commissioner Robert Marleau says his office received 536 complaints about the public broadcaster in 2007-2008, more than any other department or agency of government.Gotta love the taxpayer-funded hypocrisy.
And more than 90 per cent of the CBC complaints that Mr. Marleau has finished investigating were found to be valid.
Most of those complaints were about delays in responding to requests under the Access to Information Act, which for a $5 fee allows ordinary Canadians to ask for government documents and files.
