B.C. Health Minister Silent As Muzzling Criticism Grows

Penny Daflos

More B.C. health-care workers have spoken up publicly and on background confirming CTV News reporting on allegations of repercussions for speaking up about patient care and workplace conditions, but the health minister has not answered questions on the matter. 

The Doctors of BC and BC Nurses’ Union joined others in denouncing efforts to silence questions, criticism and complaints, whether on the record publicly, or through internal channels within the public health-care system.

… Adrian Dix’s office claimed that, despite an entire day’s notice and an extension of the deadline to respond, he was not available, sending an extensive written statement reiterating past talking points that there are “appropriate” channels to raise concerns and that whistleblower protection is in place for workers.
