INTERIM Leader of BC Liberals Shirley Bond on Friday said in a statement on the recent revelations about the policy not to declare outbreaks in long-term care homes: “The recent revelations about the secrecy and a lack of data transparency around outbreaks in B.C.’s long-term care facilities should shock all British Columbians.
“Families lost loved ones in long-term care throughout B.C. and they deserve answers from the government.
“British Columbians deserve to know that happened and why it was kept from the public, but the Premier and the Health Minister have been absent since these serious revelations came to light.
“Given [Premier] John Horgan’s poor track record with transparency, families impacted deserve a full public accounting of what occurred, and we will continue to press his government for answers and accountability.
“Anything less is simply unacceptable.”
