Dropping in from Canada

From afar in Canada, itself in election mode since Sunday, the new NSW Government appears to be on the back foot within days.

Meanwhile Minister Faulkner didn't say much new about whistleblower protection in this speech launching the Whistle While They Work Report of Dr AJ Brown of Griffith University.Next step is the Dreyfus report in February 2009.

And this ABC report of the Prime Minister's address to a publishers conference doesn't advance things either on the Freedom of Information reform front, with its emphasis on his obsevation that some degree of confidentiality in government will always be necessary. Perhaps the speech itself was more more encouraging but is yet to appear on the PM's website.
