(June 30, 2022) – MHA for Conception Bay East – Bell Island and Leader of the Progressive Conservative Official Opposition, Dave Brazil, is raising concern following a recent report from the Privacy Commissioner about the continued pattern of the Liberal government whose default position is to hide information.

“Yesterday the Privacy Commissioner ruled that the Liberal Government must release the Premier’s billings as a surgeon, as was asked for through the ATIPPA process. I am concerned that instead of immediately providing the information, the Liberal Government’s immediate reaction was to hide it,” said Brazil.

Brazil continued to note that this is a concerning pattern from the governing Liberals.

“The Liberals will not release the Rothschild Report, they tried to hide the whistleblower report into conduct at Elections NL, they delayed the release of the Greene Report, and now we see that they try and use ATIPPA to prevent the release of information. Premier Furey should realize that the people of Newfoundland and Labrador are his boss and they are entitled to the free flow of information,” concluded Brazil.
