Canadian Journalists for Free Expression have started a campaign to reform our Access to Information:
A strong access to information system is vital to maintaining a healthy democracy. The public has the right to obtain the information it needs to participate meaningfully in the democratic process, while also holding Canada’s public officials and Members of Parliaments accountable. The current system is failing Canadians.
Our country deserves an open and accountable government. CJFE is calling on the Canadian government to make access to information reform an election issue this fall.
