I'm pleased to announce Public Eye is a media sponsor for the BC Information Summit - part of Right to Know Week (September 27 to October 1). As a member of the fourth estate and frequent filer of freedom of information requests, I've always been a strong supporter of more transparency in government and across the public sector. I'm also proud to be participating in a public forum concerning information access issues on September 30 at the Greater Victoria Public Library's central branch. The forum, which is taking place between 1:00 to 2:30 in the afternoon, will include a panel featuring Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham, City of Vancouver corporate information and privacy manager Paul Hancock and myself. It will be chaired by University of Victoria privacy officer Bill Trott. I look forward to seeing you there.
