Subject: Post 1901 Census - Information Commissioner's legal actions
Date: Thu, 12 May 2005 10:38:03 -0700
References: <013601c5570d$ce8aa030$0400a8c0@GORDON5> <00a601c5570f$424018b0$ccdade18@your1rnfg39627>
The legal action (Application for Review) of the Information Commissioner is
proceeding on schedule at this time. The time-table of events for that, as
ordered by Madam Prothonotary Mireille Tabib on 2 March 2005 is as follows:
* The Respondent shall serve and file all affidavit evidence pursuant to
Rule 307 no later than March 31, 2005.
* Subject to the Respondent's right of challenge, as set out in the
preamble to the Order dated November 30, 2004, the Applicant may serve and
file reply affidavits no later than April 15, 2005.
* Cross-examination on affidavits shall be held no later than May 27, 2005.
* The Applicant's record shall be served and filed no later than June 27,
* The Respondent's record shall be served and filed no later than July 27,
* The Applicant shall, no later than August 8, 2005, serve and file a
requisition for hearing.
In the above Order, the Applicant is the Information Commissioner of Canada,
and the Respondent is the Minister of Industry.
It should be noted that there are actually three separate, but related
Applications for Review by the Information Commissioner. I have received
copies of all documentation related to these Applications from the Office of
the Information Commissioner. It is my hope that I can shortly make them
available on the Post 1901 Census Project website but there have been some
problems on placing these files on the server. Should these problems be
resolved, and I am able to proceed with this project, there is one other
problem. All of these files are in PDF format and most are extremely large
in size. As such they are not suitable for downloading on a dial-up
connection. Even on a high-speed connection many of them would take several
minutes to download.

Like you I am terribly disappointed and have just fired off an e-mail to
Stephen Harper, Peter MacKay and Gerald Keddy. I know it won't do any good
but it made me feel better. Since it looks like our bill is going into the
waste basket once again how do we stand on our court challenge and is it
