Regina: Right to Know Week reception

A friendly reminder to those who are interested that the "Right to Know" week reception is happening tonight in the Window Room at SIPP. Drop by at 7:00.

More info here.

The Lieutenant Governor Gordon Barnhart will be in attendance and David Gollub, Vice-president of the Canadian Newspaper Association will be our guest speaker. I understand the theme for his talk will be "broken promises in Ottawa and the culture of secrecy that won’t die."

"Right to Know" initiatives have garnered some attention.

I think the CTF should oppose the Lieutenant Governor as a waste of taxpayer money.
