Democracy dies in darkness and Premier David Eby is throwing your right to access government information into a blackhole. 

“Government is systemically failing to abide by the law,” according to the government’s own Information and Privacy Commissioner. 

Here’s what you need to know about the failing government transparency laws in British Columbia: 

In B.C., you have the right to demand documents from the government. The government is spending your money so you have a right to know how the government is spending it. Once you make a request, the government has 30 days to turn over the documents. 

But Eby’s government is systematically ignoring that legal requirement. Over the past three years, only 55 to 58 per cent of freedom of information requests were answered within that 30-day period. 

There are some instances where the government can request an extension, but they failed to do that and broke the law 5,100 times in the last three years. 

Here’s the most startling part of the information commissioner’s report: The premier’s office is breaking the law the most. 

If you think that’s unacceptable, then you need to take action now.  

You can tell Eby what you think about his office breaking transparency laws by sending the premier an email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Just tell the premier why you believe transparency is important.
