The Halton Region Board of Commissioners of Police (the Police) received a request under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act) for access to the "Report of the Professional Standards Branch of the Police" which was presented to the Halton Regional Police Services Board (the Board) on March 30, 1992. The Police denied access pursuant to sections 8(1)(a), (b) and (f), and 8(2)(a) of the Act. Subsequently, the Police raised section 6(1)(b) as an additional exemption claim. The requester appealed the Police's decision.
Mediation was not successful, and notice that an inquiry was being conducted to review the decision of the Police was sent to both the Police and the appellant. Written representations were received from both parties. In their representations, the Police withdrew the section 8(1)(f) exemption claim.
