This series examined the Freedom of Information legislation in Newfoundland and Labrador. "The Newfoundland FOI Act is 20 years old and has suffered from a series of regulatory and legislative changes that has weakened its effectiveness. ... The major finding of the series was that the province's FOI act is not working; time deadlines are ignored, requests are rejected out of hand with no practical form of appeal, and documents that are released are often incomplete. Some requests have not .. been answered. Others were lost, and still others faced massive fee barriers."
