Free Workshop on Freedom of Information

Ortenburger Johnstone 3.jpgSome of the Plan B protesters found out first hand that it's not always easy to get detailed government information. Phone calls making requests or going on government websites will only get you so far. But there is a formal process you can go through to get government documents under the Freedom of Information and Personal Privacy Act. The members of the PEI Citizens Alliance, made up of many of those upset about plan B, are hosting a free workshop on how to access government information. It's being held at this Saturday, February 16th from 1 until 3pm at the Cornwall Civic Centre. Two members have joined us today - Chris Ortenburger and Roy Johnstone.
