On March 11, 2011, as a result of litigation before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, I managed to score a victory in R.M. v. Toronto Police Services Board. This decision sought to reconcile the decisions of Justice Weageant in S.M. v. Toronto Police Services Board, 2008 ONCJ 579 and S.M. v. Toronto Police Services Board, unreported, December 23, 2006 (O.C.J., per Weageant J.); Justice Blacklock in K.F. v. Peel Regional Police Services Board et al. and Justice Cohen in R. v. R. L., 2008 ONCJ 29.
As a result of this judgment it will now be easier to access records of extra-judicial measures for the purpose of litigation before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario and in civil court.
