This may be another example. There are only a couple left, Chair, where we've tried to narrow the categories.
The legislation, Bill C-58, adds reference to disclosure where “solicitor-client privilege” is involved. This would be confirming that the commissioner has the ability to deal with matters of solicitor-client privilege, but also would add that the disclosure is withheld only if the:
disclosure of the information could reasonably be expected to be injurious to the interests of the Crown.
There's a phrase lawyers use called “lawyer-washing”, whereby you simply bring a lawyer into a meeting, call it solicitor-client, and that's the end of access.
This amendment is to say, yes, it's solicitor-client perhaps on its face, but only if it's injurious to a demonstrated interest of the crown would the information be withheld. I realize it's another effort to narrow the exemptions, and you consider that in your judgment to be contrary to the scope and principles of the act.
