Judicial review petitition moot after requester loses interest in obtaining access to record

On January 8th, the Supreme Court of British Columbia dismissed a British Columbia Lottery Corporation petition for judicial review because the requester was no longer interested in receiving a copy of the policies and procedures manual at issue. It rejected the BCLC’s argument that the petition should be heard because of the prejudice it would face in dealing with future requests for the same record, stating “If, in the future, some other party seeks production of the Manual, the Commissioner will have to decide the matter based on the law and evidence as it then exists.”
