They better walk this policy back. This is terrible for democracy.

Holy red flag on government storing information outside the country. Is that pending policy/legislative change limited to government or all the contracted organizations etc it works with as well? Either way, no thanks.

Hey Vaughn you failed to mention this in your diatribe this morning. There are no fees incurred for making a personal FOI request, but requests for general, non-personal information may incur a fee or fees. Section 75 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act
