Canada’s secret no-fly program not quite as secret any more

Since 2007, the government has been compiling names on a no-fly list.  For years, government officials have been refusing to disclose even the most basic information about Canada’s Passenger Protect program, including even releasing the number of names on the list.  A recent labour  grievance, however, has shone a small ray of light on the program and its procedures – by releasing the table of contents of an operational binder.  You can read the full story, on the Globe and Mail‘s website.  In my opinion, the fact that disclosure of a binder’s table of contents is newsworthy is more telling than any of the actual details revealed.
