There are a whole lot of questions in Mr. Palmer's latest column on the Health Worker firings, only one of which actually matters in my opinion.
But never mind all of that because the following is actually something almost kinda/sorta interesting tacked to the bottom of all the tip-toeing and froing:
...The government justified the multiple exclusions (in their redacted copy of the Comptroller General's report) on grounds of “personal privacy.”
But on comparing the original text, (the VSun's Rob) Shaw discovered that many of the censored passages contained no names or other matters of a personal nature. Rather they addressed general failings of the Health Ministry in handling contracts and provided extensive advice for rectifying the situation.
All of which raises the possibility that the censors were less concerned with protecting privacy than with protecting the government.
Hence The Sun’s decision to ignore government objections and publish (on the un-redacted version of the report) in the public interest. Shaw’s stories on the comptroller general’s report appeared in the paper Saturday and Monday...
One might almost wonder if the fine folks down at Vancouver Sun headquarters are getting ready to set up a war room or something.
Then again, I suppose doing something like that might be construed as cultish.
And we wouldn't want that now would we.
