Maybe they have been there before on other issues, but now they join the United States in the post Sarbanes era making it a criminal offense to take adverse action against whistleblowers. Michael Fitzgibbon at Thoughts of A Management Employer, the Canadian employment law blog, has the story and a link to what he calls a great legislative summary. And although I am not sure of the exact meaning, but you should know that this is an offence punishable on "summary conviction." Sounds pretty scary to me.
