Please release the full contents of the report and any other documentation generated to fulfil this contract (awarded to March 31, 2014, with an option to extend to March 31, 2015) to date, including any records about any decision to extend this contract and any correspondence, particularly with the minister's office, about whether or not the contents of this report can be made public. *** In considering this request, please keep in mind that although it may contain some information some parties feel is commercially sensitive, the CWB is currently sitting down with its competitors (ie. multinational players in the grain industry) and opening its books for the purposes of seeking/evaluating competing bids from private-sector investors interested in becoming majority/controlling partners for a commercialized CWB post-2017 (or sooner) - any argument that the report cannot be released because it would contain information harmful to the CWB's competitiveness must be weighed against the fact that the CWB's major competitors are already being given this information as part of the capitalization process for the CWB. (I can explain this argument in more detail, if required.) Disclosed in part 114
