Metro Vancouver Freedom of Information Requests
3rd Floor, Head Office
4330 Kingsway
Burnaby, B.C.  V5H 4G8

Attention: Chris Plagnol, Information and Privacy Coordinator

Dear Mr. Plagnol:

This is a specific information request made under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (also reference Greater Vancouver Regional District Bylaw No. 792: A Bylaw for the Administration of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act).

Please provide me with [example: a copy of the sound and video recording files relating to all business transacted at the meetings of Metro Board (Meeting 1 – Parks, and the actual Board meeting) held on 26 July 2013].

I have reason to believe that the information I seek might not be made available through routine release upon informal request.

If fees are involved, I understand I will be given an estimate before any charges are incurred. Should such circumstances arise, I would request a fee waiver, as the information sought from these records relates to a matter of public interest.

Sincerely yours,
