Commissioner ordered City to release access decisions

Bigger: Corruption, Deception and Manipulation

Bigger administration has not made any progress towards good governance & transparency

The City of Greater Sudbury issued a single decision in response to two access requests that it received under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The city’s decision was to refuse to process the requests on the basis they were frivolous or vexatious pursuant to section 4(1)(b) of the Act. The adjudicator finds that the requests are not frivolous or vexatious and orders the city to issue access decisions responding to both of them.

Fowke and Labelle led the City’s administration mafia attempting to conceal information from the public. A new manager who was added to corrupt administration Adam Kosnick, coordinated with Labelle and Fowke during the proceedings and their efforts were successfully defeated.  

According to leaked information, Fowke spent $1,501,635.49 between October 2013 to March 31, 2018 for employment matters to external legal services. The City has its own legal division with 7 lawyers and costs taxpayers over two million dollars annually.
