Question time (II)

Again following up from Saturday's Tellytorial — an odd place to go spilling beans about failures of accountability that should have been spilt in hard reporting, but anyway:
The province won't release a six-page CRA report generated by the pollster's August questions, saying it is confidential third-party information. In other words, even though the province paid to see the numbers, CRA actually still owns them.

Let's suppose, for the sake of argument, that some of the August questions, or any other of CRA's quarterly omnibus questions, were bought and paid for by the provincial government.

Commissioned, you might say.

They would then be captured by the quaint 2003 election promise by Danny Williams-Government:
A Progressive Conservative Government will: Release to the public every government-commissioned report within 30 days of receiving it, indicate the action government will take on a report's recommendations within 60 days, and ensure prompt public access to all government reports in hard copy and on the Internet.
