Access to information bill ‘beyond redemption,’ Tories say, as committee wraps C-58 study

Vice-chair Erskine-Smith stood alone among Liberals, voting with the opposition to limit fees to $5 only.

Conservative MP Bob Zimmer, chair of the Access to Information, Privacy, and Ethics Committee, and Suzanne Legault, the federal information commissioner, speak before Ms. Legault’s Nov. 1 appearance before the committee. Ms. Legault has said if Bill C-58 passes as proposed, it would have a regressive impact on the country’s access to information regime. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
