Join Centre for Free Expression for the 3# in their series: Why Whistleblowers Matters, for a conversation with Janet Merlo and James L. Turk.

When: 4 October 2022. 4:00-5:30pm (EDT)
Where: Online, Zoom.

Janet Merlo, an RCMP constable for almost 20 years, began speaking publicly in 2012 about the gender-based harassment and discrimination that was the everyday experience of women in the RCMP. She wrote a best-selling book, No One To Tell: Breaking My Silence on Life in the RCMP. Afterwards, she helped launch a successful class action lawsuit against the RCMP. The retaliation was fierce. Join Janet in conversation with CFE Director, James L. Turk, about what happened, why this matters for all of us, and what still needs to be done.

Co-sponsors: Edmonton Public Library, Milton Public Library, Toronto Public Library, Vancouver Public Library.
