RG 18-210 Records of the Walkerton Inquiry
Sub-series consists of the Walkerton Inquiry website as it existed at the end of the Inquiry. Contents of the website include all of the publicly available documents produced by and for the Inquiry, such as the Report of the Walkerton Inquiry, Parts One and Two, administrative information about the Inquiry, transcripts of the hearings for Part One, and transcripts of the public and town hall meetings for Part Two, research reports that were commissioned by the Inquiry and news releases.
The structure of the website is intact. All of the internal links in the website to documents remain usable; any links to sites outside of the Inquiry's website will not be maintained by the Archives.
The Walkerton Inquiry's website was administered by a private service provider up until the conclusion of the Inquiry. Thereafter, the Ministry of the Attorney General maintained the site as part of their Ministry internet site until 2003. The website was removed from their site in 2003.
The website can be properly accessed using MS Explorer, ver. 6. Other browsers may work equally well. The component computer files comprising the website can also be accessed using a file manager like Windows Explorer.
Researchers using the website may notice a link to the website of Tscript Services Inc. at www.tscript.com. The hearing transcripts were produced by Tscript Services Inc. for the Inquiry. The transcripts are maintained on Tscript's own website at their discretion and it is not known how long the link to the Walkerton Inquiry transcripts will remain operable. Researchers may access paper copies of the hearing transcripts held by the Archives. Please see sub-series RG 18-210-4.
Please contact a Reference Archivist for information about obtaining access to the website.
