City councillor names FOI requester during public meeting

During a public meeting, a city councillor mentioned by name a citizen who had made a number of requests for information to the city. The disclosure led to several references to the requester in the local paper as well as a complaint to our office by the requester that the city had inappropriately disclosed his personal information in contravention of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (“FIPPA”).
