There's a problematic veil of secrecy over what will happen inside the Alberta government's war room to combat "misinformation" about the oil and gas industry, say democracy watchers.

Mount Royal University political science professor Duane Bratt said he was puzzled when he heard the internal workings of the citizen-funded Canadian Energy Centre would not be subject to freedom of information and privacy (FOIP) law in the province.

"I thought the purpose was transparency, and to correct misperceptions and to be open," Bratt said on Friday. "That seems to be contradictory to incorporating this."
