Ottawa — Conservatives affairs the Public Health Agency of Canada after the head of the Public Health Agency of Canada once again refused to hand over unedited documents related to the dismissal of two scientists from Canada’s premier security institute. I am proposing to search for a place.

The move came after PHAC President Ian Stuart appeared in front of the House of Commons court and was accused of refusing to comply with the writing order by Chairman Anthony Rota.

He nevertheless did not provide the document, despite being exposed to public shame. This is a procedure that has not been used for civilians for more than a century.

Stewart reiterates that the document cannot be published due to his legal obligations as a veteran civil servant to protect national security and privacy rights.

Gerald Demeter, a conservative House leader, said it must result in Stewart’s continued blame for House orders. He proposes that Rota instruct Commons guards to search the PHAC office for documentation.

The new Democrats have expressed support for the proposal. Bloc Québécois withheld that decision.
