Still asking the government of Alberta for information

#GOASECRECY---If you thought the PCs were secretive welcome to the era of total non-transparency with the NDP folks.
It's pretty ridiculous.

Hi,

Is anyone going to respond to my questions about information release?
I have asked for example--- about why it takes so long to get the fatality reports on prisoners now ---when before it was quick?
Why are citizens waiting for these fatality reports now when we did not have to in the past? 

I am not only waiting for the fatality reports but also the health audits done in 2014 on the Good Samaritan Society Millwoods facility. I have been waiting for these reports since 2014. I am speaking about the Alberta Health Quality Audit of 2014 and the AHS respiratory audit of 2014.
I don't understand what the problem is. I have even told y'all I am being sued and need this information to defend myself in court but no response from the premier's office. What is going on in government?

Why is Alberta Justice not answering these questions? Why is Alberta Health not answering these questions? Where is the Premier in all of this?

I have placed my most recent correspondence with reference to the fatality reports  below so you can see how ridiculous this is.


 It is very odd that the government of Alberta cannot release information in a timely fashion or really any information at all.

Thank you,
Julie Ali

Good morning Ms. Ali,

You can access a copy of this report on the Justice website as follows:  https://justice.alberta.ca/programs_services/fatality/Documents/fatality-report-jac.pdf

This report was redacted as Jefferson was in the care of Children’s Services.

With respect to your email of January 31, 2017, this involves some more complex issues and a response is still being formulated.

Hi,
When will I get a response to the request for the remaining fatality inquiry reports for this request? 
You indicated that reports back to 2004 are now in the system. What about the reports prior to this date? 

Historical reports are part of my inquiry.
sincerely,
Julie Ali

Dear Ms. Fuchinsky,
With reference to  historical reports does this mean reports not in the system yet? Can you search for the deaths of prisoners in these reports still?

Dear Ms. Fuchinsky,
If you were waiting for the upload you could have told me this. I was assuming that you were working on this project. Hence my repeated questions to Alberta Connects.
This is poor service.

Sincerely,
Julie

Hello Ms. Ali, in response to your questions:

1.      I can run a search and provide these for you. How far back do you want them?
2.      At this time there is not a public database.
3.      The reports are public and are available to anyone who makes a request.
