This kind of flies in the face of the Sask. Party's 2007 campaign promise to "provide Saskatchewan people with more transparency and accountability than any previous government,...."
In a series of articles posted on his blog over the past month, Kuchta has disclosed a litany of government refusals to comply with requests made under the Freedom of Information Act:
Dec 31, 2008 - Patient First Review: Saskatchewan Health refusing to release consultant Tony Dagnone’s Scoping and Planning Project document
Jan 03, 2009 - Executive Council denies access to Premier Brad Wall’s speeches to the Enterprise Saskatchewan board of directors and sector team chairs
Jan 26, 2009 - AEEL violating freedom of information legislation; Minister Rob Norris & Deputy Minister Wynne Young failing to respond to legitimate inquiries
Jan 27, 2009 - Saskatchewan Party government’s culture of secrecy deepens as AEEL denies access to four freedom of information requests on labour related issues
Jan 29, 2009 - Enterprise Saskatchewan: Agency making a mockery of freedom of information legislation; gov’t stalling on Uranium Development Partnership records
Any doubt the secret back-room meetings Brad Wall is having with Alberta's Ed Stelmach and B.C.'s Gordon Campbell will have Saskatchewan signing on to the anti-democratic TILMA?
