Casey Goes Beyond Demand for Answers

The RCMP’s delay in providing information to Bill Casey has led the Cumberland-Colchester MP to lodge a formal complaint to the Information Commissioner.

In 2006, the RCMP produced an internal report providing justification for consolidating several Nova Scotia dispatch centres in Truro. Since rumours began circulating last fall that the RCMP was considering relocating the centre to Halifax, Casey has been seeking a copy of that report.

Almost three months ago, Casey’s staff lodged a formal request with the Access to Information and Privacy Branch of the RCMP for a copy of the 2006 report. So far, all that the RCMP has said is that they are experiencing a “significantly high volume” of requests and cannot say when they will respond.

But Casey notes that the federal Access to Information Act requires the RCMP to respond within 30 days and to file a notice with the Information Commissioner if they cannot meet the deadline. That has not happened, according to Casey, and prompted him to complain to the Information Commissioner, Suzanne Legault.

“In the era of fake news, I think it is more important than ever that government agencies respond promptly to legitimate requests for information,” says Casey. “We don’t need rumours; we need facts, so let’s get the facts out.”
