Shredding documents…That sounds like so ‘Nixon’ era yet it seemed to be happening in Alberta by the out going Conservative regime. If this was against the law, the shredding of documents, then in my opinion a slap on the wrist and fine are not enough. The office of the province’s privacy commissioner said there’s no way to stop any illegal destruction of records until evidence turns up. A whistleblower from the ministry who remains anonymous led to the launch the investigation. Large bags of shredded documents have appeared outside the doors of government department offices.
