Information on ’22 Commonwealth Games bid denied
Their response was 318 pages of blacked out and heavily redacted (censored) documents (click blue link above to view) – mostly copies of the correspondence sent by Grumpy Taxpayer$ to the CRD on the issue. The FOI request was handled in-house by CRD staff.
“The extensive redaction is a further insult.”
So much for the ideal of open and transparent government and providing citizens with the opportunity to observe and engage their elected representatives to foster trust and confidence in decision-making processes and allowing for meaningful participation and contribution from informed citizens.
Information was requested for CRD correspondence related to the Games bid from 2015 to July 12, 2017, but was denied under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act under sections 12(3), 13(1), 16(1) 17(1), 21, and 22.
