Finally, the opposition has called for a probe into the release of documents. The Conservative government hasn't been following the law. One censured report was handed over 82 days after the deadline. Talk about being late. Also, memos could have been censured straight from the Conservatives for partisan reasons. This is not the only information the Tories haven’t been providing. During the Afghan detainee issue, the documents were heavily censured and not providing Canadians with reliable information.
The request from both the Liberals and NDP follows news that a top political aide to the Public Works Department's minister overruled bureaucrats and had forbidden the release of a sensitive report to The Canadian Press.
"That’s why the information commissioner must investigate all instances of Conservative interference and order the public release of all politically censored documents," Liberal Treasury Board critic Siobhan Coady said on the party's website on Monday.
