Even with the redactions, it'll be intriguing to see what gets thru.

Meanwhile, way to maintain the high ground ...
I’m willing to wager that “not much” makes it through redaction…Trudeau et Cie., being the stalwart supporters of electoraly-promised transparency that they are, agree that ensuring visibility of some of the government’s most important decisions to date…

Remember, as ‘WE’ know 😉 , “past performance *may or may not imply future performance….”

The previous CPC government under Harper weren't terribly transparent either, so a lot of performative demos for soundbites on both sides over the years. I'm sure if the government flips there will be more of the same from whoever is in power.

Just wish they would stop pretending they will be different, when they are generally just differently scented piles of manure when in power.

Geez....

What happened to the good old days when media outlets curated teams of snitches throughout government so they could heartily contradict government posturing? ;)

The reporters at higher levels still do. Now, though, when MSM quotes "unnamed gov't sources" now, either 1) folks believe them because confirmation bias, or 2) folks don't believe them because they're just bureaucrats (perhaps even subverted to the whims of the ruling party, or at least being parochial & protecting their iron rice bowls).

The sort of redactions I’m speculating about would likely be S.38 Canada Evidence Act stuff- national security intelligence, etc. Even reporters’ snitches will generally be pretty carefully about stuff that’s legit classified. Actual intelligence product, etc. Though I would guess we’ll see some declassification of some portions of intelligence assessments that informed the decision.
