The following are the video recordings of the panel discussions from the first ever conference on whistleblowing held in Canada.



March 15, 2022: 

Today we are publishing the fourth in Whistleblowing Canada’s series of six policy briefs on whistleblowing and drug safety. Learn why reprisals occurred in this case. Learn how challenging authority and public policy changes – which put public safety at risk inside dysfunctional organizational cultures and structures, along with outdated loyalty and secrecy oaths – triggered reprisals. And reflect on the following “…the continuing legitimacy of the organization necessitates the illegitimacy of the whistleblower. This helps explain the continual blacklisting of the whistleblower and their vilification.”
