The leader of the NDP continues to call on the government to hold a public inquiry into the firing of eight health researchers, one of whom took his own life.
John Horgan says if the legislature was sitting this is what he’d put to the Premier.
“You’ve destroyed freedom of information documents, you’ve had a pattern of behaviour within the senior levels of government where they do not give information to the public and on this most critical of issues ya made up a story, ya fabricated a story of an RCMP investigation where none existed, call a public inquiry let’s get to the bottom of this.”
Horgan is also critical of the Premier for deciding to close the Burrard Street Bridge for a yoga event in honour of International Yoga Day.
“You know, what really bothers me about that is that the Indian Consulate and a committee of yoga activists have been planning for an event at the same time at the Plaza of Nations.”
Horgan says the bridge shouldn’t be closed for yoga and he says it’s just another way for the Premier to draw attention to herself.
But Horgan is pleased B-C Ferries won’t be introducing gambling on board it’s vessels.
“The challenges at BC Ferries are well known and I don’t think you solve that by having a captive audience for an hour and 45 minutes across the Salish Sea trying to make slot machines viable.”
Horgan says the better course of action would be to put in efficiencies to make sure the corporation is running as a piece of transportation infrastructure, not a cruise line.
