TORONTO, ONT., May 22, 2024 / CNW/ - Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston’s office has been selected as this year’s recipient of the Code of Silence Award for Outstanding Achievement in Government Secrecy for its decision to walk back a plan that would have given order-making power to the province’s information and privacy commissioner.
