New Brunswick, Canada


The following excerpt is from Whitaker v. Peters, 2006 CanLII 57277 (NB OMB):

4. I have recently had occasion to comment upon s. 6 exemptions under the Right to Information Act, in the matter of Whittaker v. Dubé. (NBRIOR 2006-02). It is unnecessary to repeat that analysis here, save to reiterate that it is sometimes appropriate, where privacy interests and access to information interests are in conflict, to balance those interests one against another.
