    Its too bad that you guys don’t have something like this as part of your laws. It applies to all government employees at all levels all accross Canada. Oh, and yes it works… I know from personal experience. :^)

    Criminal Code of Canada section 337. Public servant refusing to deliver property

    337. Every one who, being or having been employed in the service of Her Majesty in right of Canada or a province, or in the service of a municipality, and entrusted by virtue of that employment with the receipt, custody, management or control of anything, refuses or fails to deliver it to a person who is authorized to demand it and does demand it is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding fourteen years.
    R.S., c. C-34, s. 297.

    Complying with FOIA is easy, all you have to do is check the appropriate box and give the information up. Denying FOIA is harder, you should have a legal education to make sure it is denied in accordance with the law. Official FOIA denier is an interesting job title.

  3. Yawn – wake me up when the Office of FOIA Denial has its own tactical swat team – or compliance team…

    I expect it’ll be a fairly short nap.
