The Ministry of Health (the Ministry) received a request under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act) for access to copies of all correspondence, memoranda, investigation reports, and complaints made by or concerning the requester, commencing in 1983 through to the present.
The Ministry located records responsive to the request and, following notification of affected parties under section 28 of the Act, decided to release the information with severances made pursuant to section 21. One of the affected parties appealed the Ministry's decision to release the record in which he was named.
Mediation was not successful and notice that an inquiry was being conducted to review the Ministry's decision was sent to the appellant, the original requester and the Ministry. Representations were received from the Ministry and the original requester.
The record at issue in this appeal consists of a thirteen page transcript of a taped interview with the appellant.
