Freedom of Information in Esquimalt
Everyone in the CRD knows that policing in Esquimalt is a hot topic these days. With this in mind, I’ve submitted a couple of Freedom of Information requests. Here is what I’ve asked for:
- The RCMP police service proposal submitted in response to RFP NO. ESQ-01-11. This request has been submitted to Esquimalt under the provincial FOIPP legislation and also to the RCMP under the relevant federal legislation.
- All agendas and minutes of the Esquimalt Policing and Law Enforcement Advisory Board (EPLEAB).
- The EPLEAB report (submitted to both Esquimalt and the provincial government).
- All financial records of EPLEAB (its budget, expenses, etc.).
Please note that my goal in submitting these requests is not to imply criticism of a particular municipality or law enforcement agency.
