In 2003 CBC Radio and Television aired a series on clinical trials in Canada. The CBC investigation uncovered serious flaws in the system; a trail of unauthorized trials, incomplete ethics approval, unreported side-effects, and a system that was unable to save the life of a young child in Ottawa.
CBC radio producer Bob Carty was one of the reporters who worked on the story. his documentary "Tragic Trials", which aired on The Current, received a Science in Society Journalism Award.
