IM Public Lecture: Janet Burt-Gerrans (Office of the Information & Privacy Commissioner for Nova Scotia)
1994 Called – It Wants its FOI Law Back: Things Nova Scotians Should Know About Their Right to Know
Almost 25 years have now passed since Nova Scotia’s access to information law was proclaimed. Our law is badly outdated and no longer up to the task. September 28 is Right to Know Day around the world. What better time to discuss the shortcomings of our law, recommendations for improvement and things citizens need to know to ensure that they continue to have a robust and meaningful right to access government information. Join the staff of the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for a lively discussion of big data, access martyrs, duty to document and other access problems and solutions.
Co-sponsored with Dalhousie Libraries.
Room 104, Weldon Law Building, 6061 University Ave
