Try to get a straight answer out of the Liberal government. They are as rare as rocking-horse manure.
In 2015 Justin Trudeau ran on a promise of transparent government.
Speaking at a campaign stop in Papineau, he accused Stephen Harper of turning Ottawa into a “partisan swamp,” and pledged to “ … make information more accessible by requiring transparency to be a fundamental principle across the federal government.” Trudeau accused the outgoing prime minister of leading the “most secretive, divisive and hyperpartisan government in Canada’s history,” and said that he would “clean up his mess.”
The Liberal campaign platform read, “Government and its information should be open by default. Data paid for by Canadians belongs to Canadians. We will restore trust in our democracy, and that begins with trusting Canadians.”
