This instalment of You Make the Call features a worker in a safety sensitive position who was fired after testing positive for drug use.

The 51-year-old worker had more than 30 years of service as a conductor with Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in British Columbia and had a number of instances of discipline during that time, though by early 2012 he had no demerits on his record.
