Description

This project by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation revealed that as many as 10,000 Canadians were dying as a result of allergic reactions to certain drugs. They found that steps taken by the government to identify some of the dangerous side-effects was inadequate. CBC appealed under the Access to Information law to get access to 37 years of adverse drug reaction reports. CAR specialists and reporters worked on this database to identify weaknesses in the system and then identified people who had been affected.
