The applicant requested records relating to a 2012 landslide near his home that originated at a logging site. The issue was whether the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations was required to disclose to the applicant a report regarding the slide under s. 25 of FIPPA. Section 25 requires public bodies to, without delay, disclose information that is about a risk of significant harm to the environment or to the health or safety of the public or a group of people, or because disclosure is otherwise clearly in the public interest. The adjudicator determined that s. 25 does not apply to the information in the report.
