Fired health-care researcher Ron Mattson

Ron_MattsonIn this week’s podcast, Province columnist Michael Smyth interviews Ron Mattson, one of the eight health-care researchers fired by the government. The workers were involved in researching prescription drugs for the Ministry of Health.

The government said they were fired because of breaches in data-sharing protocols. Later, amid a flurry of wrongful dismissal suits, the government apologized and said it had over-reacted with the “heavy-handed” dismissals.

One of the people fired, Roderick MacIsaac, committed suicide. There are growing calls for a public inquiry into the case.
