The City of Hamilton does not keep emails, they are automatically deleted after 21 days unless the Councillors specifically marks the email to be kept.

This ensures no records are available via Freedom of Information.

A simple FOI request for emails will return a bill in the hundreds of dollars.

A novel idea, and in other cities, you may get records. In Hamilton, we have the worst municipal freedom of information office in Canada - a point of pride for City Council.

Our FOI office is so bad, Newspapers Canada couldn't even give it an F in the most recent FOI audit.

Yes, F is for Failure, H is for Hamilton.
