Letters: Correction

Editor's note in November 28 letter to the editor had incorrect information

In an editor’s note on a letter “Public should know” it was incorrectly stated that the district did not legally have to divulge issues related to personnel. In fact, the contract, wage rate, etc. should be publicly available.

(http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws_new/document/ID/freeside/10_371_93) and the FOI-POP Act, section 22 (4) A disclosure of personal information is not an unreasonable invasion of a third party’s personal privacy if (e) the information is about the third party’s position, functions or remuneration as an officer, employee or member of a public body or as a member of a minister’s staff.
