In a series of articles for the Halifax Examiner, journalist Linda Pannozzo chronicles her efforts to get forest data from NSDNR. After an amazing runaround, she has to FOIPOP the department. Instead of clear answers to her questions, she gets proof of collusion between the department and industry.
These articles are reprinted with permission. The third article is still behind the Examiner's paywall, but it's a great read, as is the Examiner - subscriptions highly recommended.
