The Commissioner noted that the IAA's refusal of the request was a deemed refusal. Since deemed refusals are refusals without reasons, the Commissioner found that refusal was not justified and he annulled it. He decided that it would not be appropriate to require the IAA to release specific information since it has not been established that the IAA holds relevant information. Noting that the IAA said that it is possible that it holds such information, the Commissioner remitted the matter to the IAA for a fresh search and decision. He noted the IAA's stated willingness to provide the appellant with the requested information if it is found.
