All comments and feedback submitted in response to the PCC’s consultation were considered and taken into account by Lorne Green in making a decision on how to proceed. In order to ensure transparency in this process, all comments and feedback have also been made public in the full consultation report.
For the purpose of publishing the consultation responses, it was necessary for some redacting of some individual words and remarks to take place. There were instances in the feedback received where people had included their own personal information – such as names, addresses, email addresses – or other people’s personal information. To protect those details, it is right and proper that such content was redacted from the comments before they were made publicly available. There were also instances where individuals used abusive or offensive language in their responses. The OPCCN will not publish this language – the sentiment of the comment remains, but those words/phrases may have been redacted. The same applies for anything found to be libellous.
If a remark or comment was redacted in the consultation report, that person’s vote and views were still counted and considered.
