FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 12:30 PM TO 2:00 PM ET

12:30 pm – 2:00 pm Public Interest vs. Privacy: The Extent of Disclosure?

The Interpersonal Violence Disclosure (Clare’s Law) Act authorizes a municipal police service to disclose certain risk-related information to a current or former intimate partner where such information will assist an individual in making informed decisions about their safety. This new legislation has received both praise for its potential to help victims and serve the public interest, as well as criticism for infringing on the privacy of the individual who is the subject of the application. Join us for this exciting panel as our experts dive deeper into Clare’s Law and the ensuing battle between public interest and privacy issues, including recent debates about the release of homicide victim names and the disclosure of certain information such as COVID-19 deaths, localized outbreaks, and virus projections during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Moderator:
Ashley Smith, Saskatoon Police Service

Speakers:
Kayla Oishi, Access and Privacy Officer, Saskatoon Police Service
Ronald Kruzeniski, Q.C., Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner 
Rob Armstrong, Q.C., Privacy Counsel, Calgary Police Service
