‘I couldn’t just sit by and watch things happen’: whistleblower Ian Bron

Chief of Transport Canada’s marine transportation security’s regulatory affairs in 2005, Ian Bron said his life was turned upside down after speaking out against what he alleged were corrupt policy and regulation-making practices.

Although his speaking up at Transport Canada eventually cost him his marriage, his public service career, and his mental health, Ian Bron said he’d do it again. ‘Fundamentally, from a personal ethics perspective, I couldn’t just sit by and watch things happen.’ Today, he works as a director with Canadians for Accountability in Ottawa.
