Alberta Information and Privacy Commissioner Frank Work says he will step down when his term expires at the end of this year, The Edmonton Journal reports. "It has been my privilege to serve the people of Alberta in promoting open, transparent government and to guide citizens in the protection of their personal information," said Work, who has served as commissioner since 2002. Work oversaw the expansion of the commissioner's office in 2001 and 2004, following the Health Information Act and the Personal Information Protection Act, the report states. The government will appoint a committee to search for Work's replacement.
