In February I made a written submission to government on its Modernize the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act paper.
Today I received a letter requesting my views on releasing my submission, itself now a subject of a Freedom of Information request:
The Department of Justice and Public Safety has received this request under the Act:
- “All input submitted during the public consultations on the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act from November 2, 2017 to March 31, 2018”
We are considering disclosing records that pertain to your business. A copy of the information is attached to this letter. We would appreciate your views regarding disclosure of this information.
My reply was simply:
I have no objection to my submission being released.
It is already public and online at:
I assume that my reply is now itself a record subject to future FOIPP requests. So the tail can again eat itself in another round.
