An article in the T-J today

October 29, 2008

by Quentin Casey, warning about the potential repercussions of the proposed changes to New Brunswick’s Right to Information legislation: “Ombudsman fears law changes allow province more secrets,” (Oct. 29/08, A1). Critics contend that requests will cost substantially more, and that the proposed changes will make it easier for government to decline to answer. David Coon of the New Brunswick Conservation Council is quoted as saying, “This is going to extinguish the right to information and replace it with a privilege.”

Faculty are concerned that universities are to be included. Some are worried, for example, about the potential for their email to be accessed by the institution should there be a request made.

Many are saying that it may be time to switch to that hotmail account.
