Legault notes the original ATI legislation was passed over 30 years ago, and is in desperate need of updates and improvements.
- Extensions, where the government department says it will take longer than the mandatory 30-day timeframe
- Delays, where the government department simply does not respond within the mandatory 30-day timeframe
- Fees, where the government department says they will require more than the $5 processing fee for a particular request
- “Refusals,” where the government refuses to answer the request for information because it does not feel it has to do so.
