Wait, what? (II)

CBC reported Thursday on the Great Patriotic War for Freedom From Information:

[Interim Auditor-General] Loveys wrote that the government has lately been applying a much broader definition of cabinet secrecy "than has been seen in recent memory."

But Dunderdale said government has nothing to hide, and said that Loveys had alternative ways of getting the same information — although she could not suggest any when reporters asked her to do so.

"I think there are other ways for him to get that information other than from cabinet documents ... here are reams and reams of information that's made available to the auditor general," Dunderdale said.

"Every piece of information that comes in to government is available to the auditor general. It's just the preparation of material used specifically for the preparation of cabinet documents is not available."
O.... K...... So, under the rule that says you can't get cabinet documents, you can't get cabinet documents.

Which means, in the Former Republic of Dannystan, you can't get "material used specifically for the preparation of cabinet documents", or "the preparation of material used specifically for the preparation of cabinet documents".

Perhaps some Iranian military scientists will get their hands on these materials use for the preparation of cabinet documents, and create some cabinet documents of their own. Buwahaha ha ha ha!

Or something.

In any event, Dunderstan has come a long way from what the PC Party New Energy campaigned on in 2003:

A Progressive Conservative government will:

Proclaim new Freedom of Information legislation which will include amendments that will clearly identify information that should be in the public domain, including cabinet documents, and will require full and prompt disclosure of the information to the public.
