Police in Canada strongly resist opening up documents about an unsolved crime to the media, in almost all cases that I've encountered. They prefer to release information via a news release or press conference when they believe it will help the investigation or is in the public interest. I guess the Star thinks it's worth their time and expense to petition the court, just to get some kind of crumb from TPS when they file their inevitable objection. Crimes may take many years before there's an arrest. That could just mean LE don't yet have enough evidence to succesfully convict someone.
