"Freedom of Information" Basics with Derek Fildebrandt
Derek Fildebrandt, former Alberta Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, is now a Wildrose MLA for Strathmore-Brooks. During his time at CTF, Derek was instrumental at bringing many news stories to light, including questionable spending decisions by elected officials. Derek used the "Freedom of Information Act" to investigate government activities; an Act which allows citizens to file information requests and obtain information from the government.
In this short course, Derek shows us how he goes about the FOIP process, and how the results can be extremely rewarding. (Note: This course is available online, anytime).
