Advocates for openness and transparency in government are warning the secrecy around Alberta's new $30 million Canadian Energy Centre (CEC) leaves it vulnerable to corruption and cronyism.

This week, Alberta's government said the CEC, commonly known as the energy war room, will be a private corporation, meaning most of its operations will be exempt from freedom of information legislation.

Information about how the CEC spends its money and awards contracts won't be accessible to Albertans, raising concerns that public money will go to politically-connected insiders.
