"Tomorrow" was the introduction to Michelle Yeoh for most in the west. Startling to realize that's 25 years now. I did not know Sid Meier was Canadian. And, while I guard my remaining sanity fiercely by adding new news addictions as minimally as possible, I will have to check in with MRG's substack now and then.

Her article about government ignoring information requests - even from MPs(!) is needed.

My suggestion, for both public and private bodies, is that "Communication Departments" - an Orwellian name, since they specialize in restricting information (I can give yawn-inducing but very serious examples from my little municipal career) - all be abolished.

Replace Abolish the Police with "Abolish the Police Communications Department", make serving officers face the media, and I guarantee you'll get improved policing that same year.
