It's become standard practice for senior officials in the government to communicate by post-it notes in order to circumvent access to information laws.

All we used to have was a paper trail. Now we don't even have that.

This is the pack of weaselly shit-heads that super moron Charles Adler called "mature."

Un-fuck those slimey thieves and murderers.

Oh, man ... now that's a sleazy redefinition worthy of Patrick Ross.

I would be remiss if I didn't point out that the Accountability Act was -- ta dah!! -- a Stephen Harper "Accomplishment"!

But you knew that, right?

When I worked for the feds, hand written notes were considered eligible for ATIP request. Everything had to be copied and e-mails printed if it pertained to the subject of the request. Didn't our politicos (all parties) pass a Transparency and Accountability Act just a few years ago? Did the opposition fail to pick up on yet ANOTHER loop hole?

I believe the post-it notes are used in between e-mail correspondence to share pertinent information, thereby ensuring e-mail correspondence is incomprehensible and pertinent information inaccessible to the public.

I have a hard time disbelieving that, sooey.

I'm not surprised. Are you surprised?

I'm afraid the handwritten notes failed the truthiness test. Why would Canada's New New disseminate untruthy handwritten notes? That only could lead to public confusion and consternation. The better part of virtue in the premises is to keep the New New's record clean.

So, in the absence of documents, anything the senior officials do they are doing purely on their own, not under the orders of anybody else. Sounds like they're making themselves liable for a lot of responsibility.

Hey gang, I wonder how long it would take for them to suddenly come up with documents if their actions were under review?

Relax people.

Don't you know that since the Candian Institutes of Health Research budget was cut the PCO has been hiring molecular biologists hand over fist?

Thus, they have decided to change the definition of 'transcript' to something they are a little more familiar with.

Or some such thing.
