On June 21, 2018, a Deputy Judge dismissed my claim for denial of access to Public Election Records.
On June 21, 2018, the Deputy Judge stated: I am basing my decision to dismiss this Claim due to the plain and obvious process which is open to the Plaintiff under the MPIFFA and which process the Plaintiff has used or is presently using to obtain access to public records.
Is this the law on Freedom of Expression in Ontario, Canada in 2018? Can a court tell you that you have to use MFIPPA to access Election Records?
Supreme Court of Canada Justice L’Heureux-Dubé said it this way “Freedom of expression prohibits gags, but does not compel the distribution of megaphones”
(5) Despite anything in the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, documents and materials filed with or prepared by the clerk or any other election official under this Act are public records and, until their destruction, may be inspected by any person at the clerk’s office at a time when the office is open. 1996, c. 32, Sched., s. 88 (5).
Will you speak up to defend the Public’s right to “Freedom of expression … access to Public Elections Records” ?
Even a little 7 year old knows THAT’S NOT FAIR (civil liberties, and the Acorn Test)
