Canada’s Access to Information Act: An Epic Introduction

This is a guest post by Mark Weiler:

It’s with great pleasure that announces the launch of the video “Canada’s Access to Information Act: An Epic Introduction

The video begins with a brief overview of the Access to Information Act, which is a mystery to most Canadians. The video then removes some of the mystery by providing an example of an order for documents filed through the Access to Information Act. The video then replaces the “mystery of not knowing ATI” with the “wonder of using ATI” by opening a door to a world of FOI magic, mages, dragon’s, and re/quests! The video includes a movie titled “Re/quest”, which is about the greatest Freedom of Information Legislation mage on her first re/quest into an unknown world — the Federal Other World. Join her as she crosses scorching deserts, lush forests, and frigid mountains to find in the Federal Other World materials that some adults in This World might be able to use to learn the magic of freedom of information legislation!

The video and movie were made with creative works – music, industry quality computer animation, and images – released through the Creative Commons. The video and movie are released through a Creative Commons Attribute 2.5 license which means you are free to remix and distribute them, even for commercial purposes.

Watch the trailer to the movie “Re/quest” and/or the full epic introduction.

The video and movie are intended for civically-minded adults with a creative spirit.
