Turns out we're not entitled to know how many abortions are performed at Kelowna General and Vancouver General Hospitals. In fact, we're not even going to have a hearing into whether the statistics can be released. In a move that looks downright machiavellian, BC’s Information and Privacy senior adjudicator Celia Francis has agreed with the hospitals that the review process should be cancelled, since there's no likelihood the stats will ever be made available. That ends the request by pro-lifers Ted Gerk and John Hof for a review of the policy against releasing the information. They're planning to turn their attention now into exposing the sorry state of democracy in B.C. when you can't even ask for a review of an undemocratic policy.
