PrivacyRight podcasts present a fictional story based on files and themes that affect private organizations in BC. All characters in the story are fake, but the implications are real.
Episode 1 - Down the rabbit hole
Ben worked for a tiling company in Northern BC. When he gets laid off and has to start looking for work, he finds out that there is more to the application process than just submitting his resume.
Episode 2 - Through the haze
In our latest episode, “Through the Haze,” our investigative reporter asks: “Have you ever thought about how any association with the cannabis industry, whether as a user or a worker, could affect your eligibility to enter the US?”
The podcast unravels that thread and the result may surprise – and alarm – you: lifetime bans for admitting past cannabis use in Canada and even a “drug trafficker” label for an engineer developing equipment that could be used in the harvesting of the plant.
