Ca: City of Regina apologizes for accidentally releasing private information

The City of Regina says it is retraining staff after an employee accidentally released the private information of 1,000 citizens and city workers.

Officials admit someone from the financial services department released data late last year that included partial names, social insurance numbers, licence plate numbers, and property tax and utility account numbers.

The information went to two university researchers, who had made a freedom of information request looking for a list of payments made by the city.
