More security through obscurity in Quebec highway infrastructure

Must we continue this cat-and-mouse game? First the government wouldn’t tell us which overpasses were part of the 135 they considered unsafe-but-still-safe. Then they published the list. Now they’re refusing to publish inspection and repair reports for those bridges and overpasses.

The reasons are vague and legal-sounding, but about half seem to do with giving out trade secrets of private corporations.

I’m not interested in how Pavage Connerie Jean-Luc drills its core samples. I want to know what’s wrong with these structures and what was fixed about them. What about the law prevents the government from giving us this information?
