The lawyer for a potential whistleblower in a lawsuit against N.B. Liquor says five other former employees of the corporation are now offering inside information about its practices.
Christian Michaud told a Court of Queen’s Bench hearing in Fredericton that he was contacted on their behalf after it was reported in the media that the corporation’s former director of finance is seeking whistleblower status.
He said the other ex-employees can offer evidence of improprieties at the corporation.
“There are higher management people that I know that have seen issues of concern over the years,” he said.
“This will probably bring about other issues of concern within the organization.”
