    This post surely misses the most important part of the story.
    Des données du Centre de gestion de l’équipement roulant … obtenues en vertu de la Loi sur l’accès à l’information …
    In other words, the law on access to information had to be invoked in order to write a story about how much money the government spent on buying tires.
    So we have a government that will not even provide information on how much money was spent on tires, unless journalists go digging.
    That’s disgusting. No, it’s beyond disgusting.

      As much as I’m for freedom of information, I think it was more that the government needed prodding in order to compile such information (I don’t imagine they keep track specifically of how much they spend on tires). And invoking the ATI law is no more complicated than uttering its name in a written document.
