We live in Russia in Alberta-----------Where was I? Of course, the fatality reports. I still don't have a reason why I can't have early reports on deaths of prisoners before the uploaded ones. I was getting them before in a timely fashion and now there is a big stalled vehicle parked in the garage with no fatality reports other than the uploaded ones. Does this mean that historical reports are now not available to the public? I have no idea what the heck is going on in the GOA.

Since I am being sued I have very little time to investigate government. I am still waiting on the fatality reports on the prisoners who died in contact with the police.  They still have not told me why I can't get the "historical" fatality reports.

Now if you know me well, you know I ask for a lot of fatality reports. Why do I do this?

We live in Russia in Alberta.
The GOA never gives us information.
There is a policy apparently told to us by the Kaminski lady that there is "no paper trail, we're government" in place with reference to AHS at least.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/former-alberta-health-services-ceo-vickie-kaminski-says-she-resigned-due-to-ndp-political-interference-1.3522109

We have to be careful how we speak and write least we sound like independent thinkers.
And since everything is a privacy issue, this makes it easy for the government to refuse us information.

Let me give you some examples. In the PPIC report on the abuse of my handicapped sister at the Good Samaritan Extended Care at Millwoods, I got I think 22 pages or less; I believe there was over 200 pages redacted. Hmm.. that must mean that most of the investigation was held back by the Alberta Health Folks.

I never did get the AHS respiratory report I asked for. AHS just did a cursory phone conversation with Sue which wasn't useful. I still want that respiratory report. How and when will our family get it from AHS?

I did not get the Good Samaritan Society independent consultant respiratory review of the Millwoods facility which for some reason is proprietary information. I don't know why a consultant report that I was told our family would get is now off limits. Really it is ridiculous.

Heck the only thing that is given to me is my name and address in Alberta.

So fatality reports are really the only thing I was once able to get before the name "ALI" became known to the GOA and now I get nothing.

I even don't get answers to Alberta Connects questions unless they are hot button topics like how many kids die in Alberta schools due to bullying related suicide when the GOA provides GOASPIN which ultimately tells me that they don't know.


Where was I? Of course, the fatality reports.
I still don't have a reason why I can't have early reports on deaths of prisoners before the uploaded ones. I was getting them before in a timely fashion and now there is a big stalled vehicle parked in the garage with no fatality reports other than the uploaded ones.

I thought the PCs were old school and dinosaur. Seems like the NDP are totalitarian. We live in Russia in Alberta folks.

#ItsOurData--Apparently it's our data but not if it is "historical" data which is odd because up until this request, all historical data was given to me.
This makes me wonder if the GOA has gone Kremlin. Have the NDP become Soviet? I believe we have even less transparency than we did with the oil monarchs of the Tories. Soon we will be all in little cages like canaries forced to sing the same sad song we sang with the PCs--"Oh let this be over soon...."

Older boy has gone to NAIT. It feels very cold outside and the winter haze is everywhere. I have had half my cup of coffee but I am still pretty sleepy.
I will bring Rebecca home after lunch.

The house is full of laundry that has not yet been done.
I still don't have the fatality reports before 2003 that I requested from Alberta Justice and no explanation of why other than they are looking into this business.

Dear Ms Fuchinsky,

Prior to this request, I did not have to wait for uploads.
I got them from you directly and in a timely fashion.

If the GOA has had a recent change of policy with reference to the release of documents--maybe this information should be updated on the GOA website for Justice.
I am curious why I can't simply have the reports as before.
Are you simply overloaded with work?
What are acceptable timelines for the release of data?

Also can you indicate how far back these fatality reports go?
In other words when were these fatality inquiries begun?
This will give me a time frame for when I make a complaint to the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta.

Sincerely,
Julie Ali

Hello Ms. Ali,

As advised historical reports will be added to the Open Government website as time and resources permit and you can access them there. I can advise that reports from 2003 have been provided to Service Alberta today and I expect they will be uploaded shortly.

Thank you.

Hi,
When will I get a response to the request for the remaining fatality inquiry reports for this request? 
You indicated that reports back to 2004 are now in the system. What about the reports prior to this date? 

Historical reports are part of my inquiry.
sincerely,
Julie Ali

Dear Ms. Fuchinsky,
With reference to  historical reports does this mean reports not in the system yet? Can you search for the deaths of prisoners in these reports still?

If you were waiting for the upload you could have told me this. I was assuming that you were working on this project. Hence my repeated questions to Alberta Connects.
This is poor service.

3) Apparently complex issues are involved in the reasons I do not get the answer to my question on why the fatality reports on prisoners are still not provided in complete format.

Good morning Ms. Ali,

You can access a copy of this report on the Justice website as follows:  https://justice.alberta.ca/programs_services/fatality/Documents/fatality-report-jac.pdf

This report was redacted as Jefferson was in the care of Children’s Services.

With respect to your email of January 31, 2017, this involves some more complex issues and a response is still being formulated.

*********************
I also don't know why it takes so long to get information on dead people. In any case, I will leave the fatality report and the complaint to the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner until Alberta Justice tells me why it takes months to get reports on dead people.


I feel that there is a problem in the prompt release of data in Alberta and this problem seems to be confined to the GOA, municipal government and public bodies.

 I haven't yet asked the federal government for information as I have enough to do with the lower levels of government but no doubt the situation is the same there.
