Judicial Review



The appellant submitted a request under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act) to the City of Toronto (the City). The request was for copies of the original contract and any amending agreements between the City and a named company (the Company) concerning food concessions in parks in the east end of the City. The appellant also requested copies of the decisions of City Council related to the contract and any of its amendments.

The City granted access to the Council decisions made in sessions open to the public, but denied access to the remaining information on the basis of the following exemptions in the Act:

• closed meeting - section 6(1)(b)
• third party information - sections 10(1)(a) and (c)
• economic interest of the institution - sections 11(c) and (d)

The appellant appealed the denial of access to the contract and the amending agreement.
