FOIP in action

My request for disclosure of information on the AON contract, which is still in place, was answered by Iris Evans.

"Thank you for your letter of March 27th etc.

The document you have requested is not publicly available, as it includes third-party commerical information. However you can proceed with a Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) to my department, so that your request can be properly evaluated and all necessary legal considereations taken into account.

To learn more about creating a FOIP request and to obtain the Access to Information Form, I encourage you to call the FOIP intace Officer at 422-6860 or visit the Offfice of the Information and Privacy Commissionere of Alberta at: LINK
Signed Iris Evans.

So folks, the Minister could have sent me the contract without the third party information had she wanted to. Then, came the further clamp on access to information. This people are in so much trouble they are putting up barricades!
