This Day In Clarkland (ctd)...Why The Fired Health Care Researchers Do NOT Want The AG To Head Inquiry.


From their open letter to current Clarklandian Health minister Mr. Terry Lake:

...It is our strong preference that the inquiry not be conducted by the Auditor General or any other part of government, given that the Auditor General and many other agencies of government were directly involved in the events that led to the 2012 firings. However, if the inquiry is conducted under the auspices of the Auditor General, the inquiry should be stand‐alone and as independent as possible. The inquiry should report to the House and be mandated to release its report, without redactions, to the public at the same time as it is provided to the House...

'Nuff said?

Can we blame the fired health researchers for resisting the Auditor General’s involvement in any investigation of this affair?

Citizens should be able to trust all BC government institutions of course, but because of their raison d’ĂȘtre certain of them must be beyond reproach. The Public Service Agency, the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General, the Office of the Auditor General, and the Premier’s Office especially have to maintain the highest levels of probity.

The BC Liberals have sullied every one of those public offices to the point they may never recover in the minds of the public. We should be very angry about that.

Vaughn Palmer is now advocating for the provincial ombudsman to take up the investigation.
