Fix the FOIPOP portal says d’Entremont
PC House Leader Chris d’Entremont, MLA for ArgyleBarrington, says if openness and transparency was a priority for the Stephen McNeil Liberals, they wouldn’t have waited eight months to fix the FOIPOP portal.
Last March, a FOIPOP breach happened that resulted in the private information of thousands of Nova Scotians’ being compromised and it has become clear that the Liberal government is no closer to a plan than it was then.
“We are coming up to one year since Nova Scotians were made aware of this incident,” says d’Entremont. “This service is paid for by the taxpayers of Nova Scotia and eight months have gone by with no real progress to show for it.”
“The way the FOIPOP scandal was handled was a failure by this government. There continues to be no accountability from this government for leaving people’s personal information wide open,” says d’Entremont. “If this minister can’t get it done, then it’s time to find one who can.”
