Response to OIPC Report P-2021-002

On May 4, 2021, the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner released Report P-2021-002. The report resulted from an investigation by OIPC into the Town’s Body-Worn Camera (BWC) policy and use.

The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay has no other alternative than to voice its concerns with the OIPC’s tone, approach, and perceived reach to this investigation. OIPC’s unreasonably adversarial and disrespectful approach to fulfilling its investigative and advisory mandate is unprofessional.

On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay provided Privacy Commissioner Michael Harvey its response to the report mentioned above. A copy of the Town’s response can be found at the below link:
