Subject: Post 1901 Census -- Complaints to Information Commissioner
Date: Mon, 30 Jun 2003 21:59:06 -0700
The expected rejection of our Access to Information requests to
Statistics Canada have started coming in.
The next step in our campaign is for those receiving these rejection
notices to submit a letter of complaint to John Reid, the Information
Commissioner. With this in mind I have posted to the Post 1901 Census
Project website (at the URL following my signature) a new page
containing a sample letter of complaint. Follow the first link on the
home page of the website.
Following through with complaints to the Information Commissioner is a
very important phase of our campaign to regain public access to Historic
Census records. We expect that Mr. Reid should be prepared to take the
issue to the Federal Court, as he was prepared to do for the 1906
records that were released on 24 January 2003. We hope that his
investigation of our complaints will be speedy and productive.
