Attached is a brochure that our group prepared just last week that was distributed at the annual convention of the National Farmers Union here in Saskatoon. It gives a few more details.

Our group is in the process of submitting further Freedom of Information requests to the University. And we are working with a major Canadian news organization on an investigative piece, which will be coming out early next year. So more information will be released in due course. But in the meantime, I can refer you to the following news items related directly to the University-Monsanto connections:

Hande requested documents about U of S’ research interests

~ ~ ~

ALSO: Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner’s report recommending that most of the redactions be lifted on the transcript of proceedings of the University of Saskatchewan’s “Research Management and the Right to Know” symposium, December 2015 (if you are interested in seeing the full 40+ page redacted transcript, please let me know):

Review Report 298-2017 - June 5, 2018 - University of Saskatchewan

The Applicant requested an audio recording from the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) related to a symposium titled, Research Management and the Right to Know held at the U of S on December 2, 2015. The U of S responded providing partial access to records. The U of S withheld information citing subsections 16(1)(a), (b) and 28(1) of The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (LA FOIP). Upon review, the Commissioner found that subsections 16(1)(a) and (b) were not appropriately applied by the U of S. Further, the Commissioner found that the U of S did not appropriately apply subsection 28(1) of LA FOIP to some portions of the records but appropriately applied it to others. The Commissioner recommended some information continue to be withheld while the remaining be released.

LA FOIP 2(f)(xi),16(1)(a), 16(1)(b), 23(1), 23(1)(b), 23(1)(f), 23(1)(k)(i), 28(1), 51
