Ecojustice, an environmental law charity, is accusing the inquiry into anti-Alberta energy campaigns of unfairness for not following what it says are the basic rules of disclosure for a public inquiry.

"An inquiry held in secret cannot be called a 'public' inquiry," said Barry Robinson, a lawyer with Ecojustice in Calgary. "Legitimate public inquiries apprise, inform and educate the government and the public in an open and transparent manner.

"The current process in Alberta does not meet these standards."
