TORONTO POLICE SERVICES BOARD
The appellant in this matter has made a large number of requests under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act) and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the provincial Act with both the Toronto Police Services Board (the Police) and the Ministry of the Attorney General (the Ministry), respectively. The requests were for access to records relating to a Police investigation into his activities and his subsequent prosecution pursuant to certain charges brought against him under the Criminal Code. On September 4, 2004, I issued Order PO-2317 in which I upheld the Ministry’s decision to deny access to those records which comprised the “Crown Brief”. On March 3, 2005, I issued Interim Order MO-1908-I in which I upheld the decision of the Police to deny access to many of the records responsive to a total of 13 requests filed by the appellant. In that decision, however, I also ordered a large number of records to be disclosed as they did not qualify under the exemptions claimed by the Police.
