The Centre For Free Expression is hosting their first event in the series - Why Whistleblowers Matter. 

When: Thursday 24 February 2022,  4:00pm to 5:30pm (EST)
Where: Online, Zoom.

Join Michèle Brill-Edwards  in conversation with CFE Director, James L. Turk on Canada's regulation of prescription drugs - about what happened, why this matters for all of us, and what can be done.

After Michèle Brill-Edwards became Health Canada’s senior physician responsible for the regulation of clinical trials and market approvals of prescription drugs, she grew increasingly aware of the undue influence the pharmaceutical industry was having on the drug approval process, resulting in unreliable decisions endangering human lives. Unable to change things internally, she resigned her position and told Canadians what was going on behind the scenes.
