Incident: Vancouver law firm's files found blowing around an alley

I am advised by a correspondent from Vancouver that the local CTV affiliate reported yesterday that hundreds of confidential documents, including individuals' medical and financial data, were blowing around an alley in downtown Vancouver yesterday afternoon. CTV says the documents appear to have come from a law firm that handles personal injury matters, which I'd rather not name until I can track down further information on the incident. The firm that was named did not put anyone on camera, but gave a statement to CTV that they don't know how this could have happened and are reviewing their procedures.
