Transportation Act Review Hides Info

by Jack Locke

It was a simple request.

Canada’s Minister of Transport, Lisa Raitt, commissioned a review of the Transportation Act on June 25, 2014. The Chair, David Emerson, issued invitations to stakeholders to make submissions to the review panel. I asked for a list of names of those who were sent invitations and a copy of the generic invitation.

The response from the government Secretariat said, “The Secretariat has over 1800 stakeholders with interests in the Canada Transportation Act Review. As such, our communication media is our website,

Our website has all the pertinent information from the Mandate of the Review to the Discussion Paper to how to send in a Submission.”

The reply did not provide me with the information requested, but more troubling is that they tried to give me the run-around. Big disappointment. I have requested the information one more time. Let’s hope they get the message.
