“Mr. Rubin has been a government gadfly for more than three dedes…he has been a frequent source of blockbuster stories …having extracted embarrassing documents from reluctant departments.. he is an unmatched resource beuse of his historil knowledge of the field of freedom of information and beuse of his insider’s knowledge of many battles with bureaucrats… he has stuck to his profession and principles through thick and thin for many years.”
Dean Beeby, Deputy Bureau Chief, nadian Press, January 10, 2011
“Mr. Rubin is well known as an advote of public interest issues, and government may very well agree that some of his work is useful, but may find him a pain in the neck in other instances.”
