In the spring of 2018, Carrie Low was enjoying a night at her neighbourhood bar in Nova Scotia. She says the events that followed traumatized her for life — becoming a nightmare that continues to this day.

Low trusted police when she reported that she had been drugged, kidnapped and raped by multiple men. But she says they failed to investigate properly, and only succeeded in traumatizing her further. Now, Low is on a mission to hold these institutions to account. 

Award-winning investigative journalist Maggie Rahr is hosting the new investigative series from CBC Podcasts, titled Carrie Low VS., that chronicles Low's ongoing journey. Her tenacious fight for justice and accountability for herself and fellow survivors could change the way that rape investigations are conducted nationwide.
