The recent hacking fiasco from Premier Christy Clark last week, which has been described as a botched attempt to deflect the issue of children dying in the government’s care, has again reared its head.
The sister of researcher Roderick MacIssac, who took his life after he was dragged into a Health Ministry privacy breach scandal, has accused Clark of continuing to make “false accusations about fictional data breaches.”
“Again you go making false accusations about fictional data breaches,” writes Linda Kayfish.
She goes on: “… you just don’t care, you continue to make irresponsible and damaging accusations then glibly try to pass it off as ‘inside baseball.”
Kayfish goes on to slam the Premier for making “irresponsible and damaging accusations” and that “it seems you and your government simply don’t care … whose lives you might ruin.”
Her comments are referring to Clark’s comment during a Facebook Live interview with the Vancouver Sun where she said British Columbians did not care about “inside-baseball stuff.”
MacIsaac took his life in January 2013, he was one of eight researchers fired from the Health Ministry amid claims from the government the RCMP was investigating privacy breaches; but they weren’t.
Kayfish says she still wants “answers and accountability for what your government did to my brother.”
Clark later apologized to leader John Horgan over a phone message last Friday.
Critics said that was a botched attempt to draw media attention away from yet another report on a child’s death in government care.
