City ordered to release more details about transit incident

The City of Red Deer has been ordered to provide more information about an incident involving Red Deer Transit nearly four years ago under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

The City of Red Deer has been ordered to provide more information about an incident involving Red Deer Transit nearly four years ago under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Specific details about the incident were not released for privacy reasons.

On March 29, 2011, an applicant made two requests to the city “for all records pertaining to myself held by Red Deer Transit . . . including video surveillance” created on or after Oct. 1, 2010, and on Oct. 21, 2010.

Candace Cook, a spokesperson with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, said the city provided the records but removed some of the information, including the name and contact information of a witness and names of employees under a section of FOIP Act that allows this when disclosure is harmful to personal privacy.

The applicant asked for a review of the city’s response to her access to information request and the adequacy of the search.

Cook said the adjudicator ruled that it was appropriate for the city to release some of the names of the employees that were originally severed and to provide an attachment from an email that was not provided to the applicant.

The city has 50 days to fulfil the new request to the applicant.
