The investigation of the origins of this totalitarian bill started as soon as work
was complete on defeating the bill. The investigation started with an FOI request
to Diana Urban requesting that she turn over all documents, emails and other correspondence
about the bill so we could see where the bill came from and what false premises
lead to the extreme ignorance and outright lies that the legislators had replied
with during our repeated correspondence about the current law and the proposed bill.
Despite her reluctant admittance that she was the author and creator of the bill,
Diana Urban responded through legal counsel that she had no records to turn over
with regards to the bill. Suspicious, we compiled a list of possible officials that
she would have been likely to have had correspondence with. Individually, each of
them had a similar FOI request sent to them. Not surprisingly, one by one, they
started to hand over document after document and long chains of emails that had
Diana Urban's name in the 'from' and 'to' fields.
Clearly, Diana Urban had lied to us about her correspondence and had violated the
We continued to investigate and compile research data from our other sources that
we then used to file a detailed complaint against Diana Urban with the FOI Commission.
This complaint sought maximum civil penalties against Diana Urban for lying in her
response and withholding public documents from us. To this day, we still have not
received from her the documents that she owes us.
