The NDP health critic is hitting out at BC Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid's response to a leaked document indicating Liberal partisanship on a committee that looked into the future of Burnaby Hospital.
Mike Farnworth isn't impressed with MacDiarmid's attempt to distance the Liberal government from documents which point to Liberal partisans hoping to use the issue of improving the hospital for political gain.
"The minister is trying to put a little bit of distance between herself and her predecessor and do some damage control."
Farnworth says the committee didn't just spring out of nowhere and had involvement from the provincial government.
He was speaking on The World Today Weekend with guest host Steve Darling.
