Sunlight sinking in the west

Keryn McKinnon in The West Australian quotes the highly respected former Information Commissioner Bronwyn Keighly-Gerardy on the state of things in the west, where proposed but long delayed legislation will transfer review powers to the administrative tribunal:
“Right from word go, the FOI Act has always been slanted in favour of them (the government). The only redress the public has is the independent commissioner and the Government even wants to get rid of that. The FOI process is just a mockery.”
