The BCAAG supported an appeal by Vandenberg and Associates
to clarify that the names, opinions and actions of public
servants acting in their official capacity is releasable

those who wish to use this information about civil servants
to submit drafts of their research to the BC Archives
before release to their supervisor, employer, or publisher.
