“The State of FOI law in Canada” on TVO’s The Agenda

TVO The Agenda Dec 5, 2016

In late 2016, Steve Paiken led a discussion on the state of FOI laws in Canada, why they are important, and suggestions on reforms. The inspiration for the discussion was the 250th anniversary of Sweden’s Freedom Of The Press Act, the oldest freedom of information legislation in the world.

The forum for the discussion was TVO’s The Agenda. The panel included Suzanne Legault, the then-current Information Commissioner of Canada; Sean Holman, Journalism Professor at Mount Royal University; and Jayme Poisson, Investigative Reporter, Toronto Star.
