Canadian FOI

I had an interesting telephone conversation yesterday with the Radio station CBC one in Canada and ended up appearing on the programme Martime Noon. Part of the the programme focused on FOI and New Brunswick government's approach to open government, heavily criticised by the auditor general in his final report. They were interested to hear about the UK approach to FOI, my journal project and different FOI regimes around the world.

-Read the New Brunswick story-Read the full report of the autditor general
-Canada has both a federal law and provincial laws |(e.g New Brunswick) relating to access to information
