Case Report – Ontario Court of Appeal affirms order to produce voice cockpit recordings

This September 17th litigation and privacy judgement by the Ontario Court of Appeal slipped me by. The Court affirmed an order that requires the Transportation Safety Board to produce cockpit voice recordings from the 2005 Air France crash in Toronto despite the statutory privilege covering such recordings. The grounds for appeal were narrow, though the Court summarizes Strathy J.’s balancing of interests and calls it “thoughtful and comprehensive.” For my summary of the Strathy J. order, see here.
