Vice Media reporter must turn over materials to RCMP: court
A Vice Media reporter must give the RCMP the background materials he used for stories on an accused terrorist, Ontario’s top court affirmed Wednesday.
In a case that pitted freedom of the press against the ability of police and prosecutors to do their work, the Ontario Court of Appeal said it found no errors in an earlier ruling that went against the Canadian media outlet.
In his ruling a year ago, MacDonnell said the screen shots were important evidence in relation to “very serious allegations” and that there was a strong public interest in the effective investigation and prosecution of such allegations.
