I would also note that the Act does not specify that the payment for the list is for cost recovery, merely that the required payment be ‘reasonable’. Neither does CIRA claim it is for cost recovery, they merely say it reflects the amount of time and effort to produce the list. You have chosen to infer that there is a cost recovery element here, that is not stated in law nor by CIRA. This contrasts with laws around FOI requests, which are clear that the cost should be that of producing the requested documents, redacting where required by law, (e.g. for privacy or classification reasons) and making them available to the requestor.
