Nova Scotia's privacy commissioner has found the premier's former chief of staff broke privacy rules when he informed reporters that a former cabinet minister had been struggling with medical issues. Kirby McVicar resigned last November after stating in media interviews that Andrew Younger was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, and that he also had a brain tumour. Younger says that left him with a lasting stigma. (The report released today by Catherine Tully says McVicar disclosed sensitive personal information about Younger. Tully goes on to place much of the blame on a lack of privacy training of senior staff in the province's top political office.)
