Yak, yak, yak....Why do members of the general public keep on knocking their heads with this government about the release of requested information? Why doesn't the public just accept that this government is 'anal retentive' about sharing (period). The only resolution to the retentiveness is an enema delivered by means of a singular passage i.e. the election box? Governments need to be informed that their butts held to the fire should they become anal retentive with its voters. In the final analysis, the truth be told, is that the problem is the general public, itself! The general public accepts that the politicians will lose their conscience and voices when they are elected...but, keping voting for the jerks. The pro blem, as I intimated, is not the pollitical yo-hos, it's us. We have to change...and actively take charge of the political processes in a serious way, if change is to take place. HOLD POLITICIANS TO THEIR WORD....WE HAVE NOT BEEN DOING IT! OTHERWISE, STOP COMPLAINING.

This is what Telegram reporters consider investigative reporting? A google search? We need some real journalists here in Newfoundland - someone with training and experience in research, who has the interests and abilities of going beyond google... someone who will actually help the public understand these issues with a bit more depth

Lies! I googled “Ottawa order in council” (with quotes) and the Privy Council Office website was not even in the search results. Perhaps your instructions could be more detailed and accurare, like you expect from the government.

I just Googled it and the Privy Council Office website was the first result, as the editorial indicates.

In 1989 I felt confident I was on the right side of the law as I kept insisting I had a right to enter a Victim Impact Statement at the hearing of a pedophile. VISs were part of the Crininal Code of Canada for 2 or 3 years then. I was being told they didn't want VIPs . Concerned that I might raise the issue in the proceeding I was escorted out before the proceeding started. The officer said they thought I might have a weapon ( i did have a tape recorder). In the back room of the Hr Grace courthouse I was grabbed by 3 Mounties, the choke hold applied to near unconsciousness, handcuffed, jailed for 4 hours. This was followed by several charges against me and years of court appearances. 23 years later it remains at the Court of Appeal level. I later found out that the law of Canada was not inacted in Nfld for several years with the necesaary Order -In Council . This, it appears, was convenient to bar victims rights. Technically I remain a convict from this incident.Whenever I now hear of victims presenting their VIS, I am reminded of my desire to enter one, and the result. Order -In -Councils are indeed a part of the law. And to think they are still being hidden. Secret Orders indeed.
