LRT PROJECT: Secrecy in heavily-redacted documents

Gleaning information from the City of Ottawa on its largest-ever infrastructure project takes time.

In some cases, two years.

And counting.

One of the oldest unresolved LRT-related access-to-information requests is one submitted by the Citizen in April 2017. It sought records produced over a period of five months on risk analysis, risk management and risk mitigation related to the milestones and handover date for the Stage 1 LRT project.

The city has signed off on the release of some heavily redacted records, but the Rideau Transit Group (RTG) has appealed the release of additional material as an entity with third-party interests in the disclosure.
