Faculty association accuses UBC of illegally suppressing records

The UBC Faculty Association has filed a complaint with the B.C. Information and Privacy Commissioner alleging that the school failed to release records that should be made public, reports the Globe and Mail.

The association claims, among other things, that UBC “only provided partial access and redacted records of e-mails” related to a professor who said her academic freedom was violated after she blogged that former UBC president Arvind Gupta was a victim of discrimination by the UBC board.
