FAIR testifies to Listeriosis inquiry

Ottawa - Executive Director David Hutton testified yesterday to the Food Safety Subcommittee, which was set up to investigate last year's Listeriosis outbreak. Hutton stated that:

"Unless we create effective whistleblower protection for people working in the food industry - from the public servants who make policy and oversee the industry, to the managers and workers on the production lines - Canadians will continue to die needlessly because of avoidable failures within the food supply."

FAIR (Federal Accountability Initiative for Reform)

Federal Accountability Initiative for Reform (FAIR) promotes integrity and accountability within government by empowering employees to speak out without fear of reprisal when they encounter wrongdoing. Our aim is to support legislation and management practices that will provide effective protection for whistleblowers and hence occupational free speech in the workplace. FAIR is a registered Canadian charity.
