Obviously we're reading different laws then. The Access To Information Act that I have in front of me doesn't say what you think it says. The courts don't think it says what you think it says. The Information Commissioner doesn't think it says what you think it says. And Transport Canada doesn't think it says what you think it says.
It's very straightforward. It's written in section 20 of the Access to Information Act. The government is forbidden to release information provided by a third party in confidence except under the very narrow exceptions in the Act.
Except if it involves public safety or public interest which this clearly does. There is no prohibition.
That's possible, but you prefer institutionalized secrecy and a guarantee that none of these things will ever be publicly known?
The government has to follow through on that, which includes the requirement to keep the reports confidential.
There is no such requirement. Show me, in any law, regulation, statute, bylaw or convention where public safety information as it relates to an airline or any other public transportation company is required
to be kept confidential. Show me...
