Babble on.

If I were a machiavellian executive at CTV or Global, I'd look into hiring a couple of dozen work-from-home staff to file ATI requests at the CBC. Pay them, say, $36,000 per year to file 50 or 100 requests each and every month - whatever's a reasonable workload.

Same thing for UPS and FEDEX with Canada Post.

I suspect it would be money well spent to completely screw up a direct competitor like that in a way that they couldn't reciprocate. Of course, you'd have to get a bean-counter to crunch the numbers, but from a hassle perspective alone, it might well be worth it.

Babble off.

I am ambivalent toward Canada Post, but I downright despise the Corpse, so I enthusiastically applaud your idea to tie their ATI people in knots. Along with (I can only hope) much of the rest of the appartchiks working there.

I realize your point was directed more toward companies who compete against these agencies of Her Majesty, but the mischief value is enticing as well.

Very best from the east,
