On Fridays, J-Source will feature a new outrageous FOI response, from redactions to expensive research fees.

Or perhaps you’re still waiting for a response on a request you made a very long time ago?

We want to hear about it.

In the spirit of #FOIFriday, each week—or as many weeks as possible—J-Source will feature an FOI request to any public organization that is skirting the limits of what you think is reasonable treatment of access-to-information law. Is it administrative troubles? Or accidentally deleted documents? Unfortunately, the possibilities are endless.

Send your stories to us by email, at cbraganza@j-source.ca, or tweet us @jsource.
