SK: Information commissioner slams SaskEnergy

Information Commissioner Gary Dickson has ruled that a fee imposed by SaskEnergy to fulfill an information request from a taxpayer was unreasonable.

This is great news for taxpayers. The truth of the matter is that Crown corporations have used fees to dissuade people from accessing information four countless years. The ruling is a victory for transparency.

The sad part is the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner is woefully underfunded. Ours is a two-person shop performing an increasingly important function.
