Privacy commissioner calls on Yukon gov't to act

I think that Information and Privacy Commissioners in Canada are used to being ignored by the governments they keep tabs on. It is a bit of a thankless task. But the Yukon ombudsman is speaking out. CBC is reporting that Hank Moorlag is disappointed that, a year after filing his 2004 report the government has yet to respond to his recommendations. The ministers responsible for the various legislation say the recommendations are being addressed, including a review of the Access to Information law which is taking place behind closed doors. Mr. Moorlag is not too impressed. See CBC North - Privacy commissioner calls on Yukon gov't to act.
