The secrecy continues - somebody has something to hide

On March 8, 2010 citizen blogger, Joe Kuchta, posted an entry on his "Owls and Roosters" blog entitled: "Secrecy continues as Wall government denies third freedom of information request for Western Economic Partnership records".

Kuchta has been attempting for months to uncover the shady and secretive goings on over at the Marble Palace on the shores of the mighty Wascana. Once again, citizen Joe is being denied access to documents that all Saskatchewan citizens have a right to see. The stonewalling, secrecy, and excuses continue.

Kuchta writes:

"For the third time in less than a year, the Saskatchewan Party government has denied a freedom of information request for records pertaining to the Western Economic Partnership between Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan.

The request, dated January 26, 2010, was submitted to Executive Council for copies of any briefing notes regarding the economic partnership since October 1, 2009. The ministry’s executive director of corporate services, Bonita Cairns, denied the application on March 2, 2010, pursuant to several sections of The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act."
I think Premier Wall has something to hide. If he wasn't trying to hide something, the government would release the documents to Mr. Kuchta.
