The family of a Highway of Tears victim is worried that an action plan to be released in response to the province’s “deleted emails” scandal will get lost in the days leading up to Christmas.
Former privacy watchdog David Loukedelis is supposed to hand in his report on the government’s Freedom of Information practices by December fifteenth.
Tribal Chief Terry Teegee lost his cousin Ramona Wilson more than twenty years ago along Highway 16.
He has mixed feelings on the deadline date.
“The short turnaround of December 15th is a good thing in terms of trying to get answers and trying to make some possible decisions, but also it is concerning because quite possibly it doesn’t get enough attention as it should.”
Last month, the current privacy watchdog found that a Ministry of Transportation staffer knowingly deleted emails that were part of a Freedom of Information request about that highway.
