    John Adams raises an interest point re institutional transparency in the CBC article “CSEC Watchdog Muzzled, Defanged” – that of whether “a knowledgeable Canadian is going to be much easier to deal with”.

    By “deal with”, does this mean “reassure” or does this mean “bamboozle”?

    I would like to think that it is the former as, from my own experience in dealing with transparency, providing information sufficient to allow the individual to reassure themselves – rather than be told that all activity is compliant – in a timely manner, goes a long way towards avoiding embroilment in long-running, reputation-damaging, disputes.
