British Columbia's Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner found the provincial government does not honor citizens' privacy rights when delaying information requests, The Canadian Press reports. The finding comes from a report from examining the government's request response time from April 2017 to March 2020. “Government has chosen to ignore the rules,” British Columbia Information and Privacy Commissioner Michael McEvoy said. “They’ve chosen to ignore the law and they simply extended the time period themselves. It’s going to result in the public losing confidence in the system if it continues.”
