Opinion: Canada’s information laws are preventing us from understanding our own history - The Globe and Mail

These—or a similar set of—authors write a piece on declassification every year or so, rightly calling attention to Canada’s lack of (and sluggish progress toward) a declassification system for historical government records. It’s notable that the examples they give are of other governments automatically declassifying some of the most theoretically sensitive information they hold, records related to national security and intelligence.

If it’s possible for natsec elsewhere, surely it’s possible for the routine and mundane here.
