British Columbia's corrupt "closed loop system" that insulates government cronies & provides complete immunity from investigation & FOI transparency.... The inner circle of governance in BC are called politicians & bureaucrats. Some are elected every four years, but the majority of power is not elected and are termed the permanent government by political scientists. Permanent government bureaucrats stay in power and are chosen by their inner circle peers. These two groups have created a closed loop system to insulate their cronies by inventing policing bodies such as the BC Teacher Regulation Branch of which they tightly control with an iron fist by hand picking the Commissioner who heads it & providing massive pay incentive. These same two groups write legislation into law to give these corrupt regulatory branches run by the BC Government complete immunity from Freedom of Information transparency laws by calling themselves an organization outside of the scope of FOI laws. Some of these corrupt policing organizations run by the BC Government and given immunity from FOI transparency include the BC Ombudsperson & every single Member of the British Columbia Legislature (MLAs) ! Even though organizations such as BCCPAC are given taxpayer money & tightly run by government cronies paid a wage by the BC government with taxpayer money, they side-step FOI transparency through legislative trickery by our corrupt & sneaky elected politicians & permanent bureaucrats. This crafty system designed to insulate government cronies is termed a "closed loop system"..... PS, for the record, the BC Office of the Information & Privacy Commissioner is most likely the last institution in BC not taken over by government corruption yet. But the BC Government controls them (OIPC) by financial under-funding & starving them out while unilaterally funding expensive legal teams to challenge & beat them down at every turn with lawyer-ism & litigation until they submit to defeat.
