Unacceptable

I see, in a Canadian Press report, from about a week ago, that the Information Commissioner, Caroline Maynard (top) has rapped the knuckles of the Privy Council Office, headed by Ian Shugart (bottom) who is, arguably, the most powerful unelected person in Canada’s government, and that includes Katie Telford.
