FOI Critic Routley calls on Virk to resign in wake of damning report

Nanaimo-North Cowichan MLA Doug Routley says there’s a culture of denial, deception and avoidance within the BC Liberal Party, and he doubts the privacy commissioner’s latest report will change that.

Routley, the NDP’s Freedom of Information critic, says Elizabeth Denham’s investigation revealed some disturbing things about how staff in the Premier’s office and other ministries handled information.

Routley says the misbehavior includes the Ministry of Advanced Education and he says Amrik Virk has a track record of abusing BC’s FOI laws shows he shouldn’t be trusted.

He’s not surprised by Denham’s findings, and he doesn’t think the Liberals will take any of her 11 recommendations to heart.
