DECLASSIFIED: Memo to PM on Ottawa Attack

This “Secret” Memo — almost completely redacted — is the only document the Privy Council Office released in response to an Access to Information request filed by the National Post for copies of all briefings Prime Minister Harper received in the aftermath of the Oct. 20 and 22 attacks in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Ottawa. The blocks of information were withheld on grounds of security, international affairs and defence, and solicitor client privilege. An additional four pages were completely withheld because they were deemed “personal information.”
