The contents posted is not a decision.  CIC has not delivered a decision.

The Whistle Blower's Act prevails as the complaint was filed under this Act and where safety and security of individual is involved.  By making himself absent, appellant ought to have convinced IC on his submission of Sec.22.  For me it appears most appropriate.
