This story reminds me of a much similar situation in January 2007.The records that were received were useless, as they also were blacked out. Eventually the province nullified the request through legislation procedures. A woman from the Rural Municipality of Daly in western Manitoba faces a long wait — 13½ years, to be exact — for government records she requested about the province's livestock industry.Before the holidays, Ruth Pryzner asked the Manitoba government for records on all known hog operations in the province, filing a number of requests under the Freedom of Information and Personal Privacy Act (FIPPA)."I'm looking for soil-test results, inspection reports, the types of manure storages that have actually been permitted in the province, the kinds of spread acres, the use of spread acres," Pryzner, a farmer and former councillor in the R.M. of Daly, said Monday.
