“PM lauds press freedom, won’t take questions from reporters
Has yet to comment on allegations that top government officials knew about the torture of Afghans taken prisoner by Canadian soldiers and handed off to Afghan forces”

“Since Harper came to power, the schedule for cabinet meetings became shrouded in mystery, requests for routine information can take days or sometimes ignored altogether and delays in processing freedom-of-information requests has grown markedly.”

His office also imposed new rules that allow Harper’s staff to choose which reporter is allowed to ask him a question

But shortly after making the speech and handing out awards, Harper was whisked through the black curtains behind the stage without taking questions from reporters.
