The BC NDP has released an attack ad featuring the sister of late health researcher Roderick MacIsaac, who took his own life in 2012 after being dragged into a Health Ministry privacy breach scandal.
The two minute and 40 second ad condemns Liberal Leader Christy Clark for failing to provide answers as to why her brother and several health employees were wrongfully fired.
“I lost faith in Christy Clark a long time ago.”
Flipping through a photo album, Linda Kayfish recalls what her brother Roderick MacIsaac was like.
“He was a pleasant person to be around.”
Kayfish then talks about how promises to find out why her brother was fired were never kept.
“Clark stood up in Legislature and said they were sorry that they may have been heavy handed, that they would get to the bottom of this. It was a pile of lies.”
‘They sent me something for four hundred and fifty something in change. There was no letter, just a cheque. I said… ‘We will never really know what really went on,'” says Kayfish.
“Premier Clark, she did not get to the bottom of this, and she made a promise that she would.”
Kayfish goes on to say Clark needs to hold people accountable for what goes on within government ministries.
