Senior officials inside the Ford government planned to keep letters to cabinet members about their mandates secret as long as they could, a CBC News freedom of information request reveals.

CBC News first filed a request for copies of the mandate letters sent by Ontario Premier Doug Ford to all of Ontario's 22 ministries and two non-portfolio responsibilities in July 2018. Mandate letters are a premier's overall marching orders to cabinet ministers.

The request was denied by the cabinet office, which claimed disclosing the records would "reveal the substance of the executive council or its committees."
