Yo Dawg! I heard you like requests...

So I wrote a request about my request, so you can read about this request while you read my other request! At the suggestion of Joseph Jones, fellow ORN member and a contributor to the Vancouver Media Coop, I sent the request to find the discussions of who they talked to when they were processing my original request, which you can read about here</a> and here</a>. Here’s what I found out:

There was an additional page referring to Section 19 of the Privacy Act</a>, which states:

19. (1) Subject to subsection (2), the head of a government institution shall refuse to disclose any personal information requested under subsection 12(1) that was obtained in confidence from (a) the government of a foreign state or an institution thereof; (b) an international organization of states or an institution thereof; (c) the government of a province or an institution thereof; (d) a municipal or regional government established by or pursuant to an Act of the legislature of a province or an institution of such a government;</strong> (e) the council, as defined in the Westbank First Nation Self-Government Agreement given effect by the Westbank First Nation Self-Government Act; or (f) the council of a participating First Nation as defined in subsection 2(1) of the First Nations Jurisdiction over Education in British Columbia Act. Where disclosure authorized

(2) The head of a government institution may disclose any personal information requested under subsection 12(1) that was obtained from any government, organization or institution described in subsection (1) if the government, organization or institution from which the information was obtained (a) consents to the disclosure; or (b) makes the information public. </em>

Now, I have no idea which regional government</a>, or which institution of a regional government</a> would want my information, but I think I’ll just follow common sense, and FOI the Vancouver Police Department and see what information they have on me. Perhaps I’ll FOI the SkyPigs</a> as well.

Anyway, when you look at the document itself, there are page numbers in the bottom right corner. Now, if you look at the original release, these numbers aren’t sequential.

Here are the gaps from the documents:
