New Democrats re­lease new doc­u­ments in health fir­ings scan­dal

Asian Journal - - British Columbia -

Van­cou­ver: New Democrats have re­leased a full, unredacted ver­sion of the McNeil Re­view into the health fir­ings scan­dal. Af­ter as­sur­ing the public that the re­port would be made pub­licly avail­able this past fall, Pre­mier Christy Clark and her gov­ern­ment failed to do so. The ver­sion of the re­port that was made avail­able to se­lect in­di­vid­u­als and the me­dia redacted key ap­pen­dices C and D. Ap­pen­dix C re­veals that as­sis­tant deputy min­is­ters who were accountable for con­tract­ing pro­ce­dures were put in charge of over­see­ing part of the health min­istry in­ves­ti­ga­tion that led to the wrong­ful ter­mi­na­tions, de­spite their con­flict of in­ter­est. The unredacted doc­u­ments raise even more ques­tions that can only be an­swered with a full public in­quiry.
