As calls continue for a public inquiry into the controversial firing of eight workers at B.C.’s ministry of health, a family member one of former employee says there’s no other way to prevent it happening again.
Linda Kayfish’s brother, Roderick MacIsaac, killed himself after he and seven others were fired after an alleged data breach in 2012.
She tells CKNW’s Jon McComb the public needs to know exactly what happened and why, or else they can’t move forward.
“I’ve received an apology. I’m not sure that they understand what they are apologizing for — the depth of it.”
Kayfish says she also wants to see the senior public servants involved in the botched firings held to account.
Last week, it was revealed the RCMP were not actually investigating the case, even though then-health minister Margaret MacDiarmid told the public they were.
It was also revealed the RCMP were not able to fully investigate the firings because the government wouldn’t hand over all necessary documents.
