Daniel Caron in violation of Parliament of Canada Act

According to the National Post, "A prominent constitutional lawyer says Canada’s top bureaucrat and 64 deputy ministers who have failed to provide details about the nature of the Conservative government’s $5.2 billion in spending cuts in their departments are violating the law and should turn the information over to the parliamentary budget officer."

Library and Archives Canada is one of the departments whose information was not supplied. Adhering to the legal requirement is a direct responsibility of the department head, in the case of LAC that's Daniel Caron.

The legal opinion cited is available here.
