Supreme Court ruling on disclosure of probation files

Share Button

On 07 July 2006 the Supreme Court of Canada quietly ruled on Goodis v Ontario (Ministry of Correctional Services).

A Law Times article (scroll to bottom)discusses the Supreme Court decision. I have crated a link to the ruling within the article

The long-awaited ruling is a protracted sequel to the 2001 decision of David Goodis, Information and Privacy Commissioner  in response to a CBC-radio reporter’s request for files through access to information.

I have to digest this and wrap my head around it but am immediately struck by the applicability to the Cornwall Public Inquiry and Justice Glaude’s rulings on redaction, disclosure and the manner in which files will be disclosed and those who lay eyes on ‘top secret’ information sworn to secrecy. 

Enough for now,
Sylvia
