🧵What’s B.C.'s biggest "media operation"? Perhaps only rivalled by @cbcnewsbc, it’s Government Communications and Public Engagement (GCPE), the people behind @BCGovNews. Annual budget ~$28M. The PR dept. of #bcgov is managed by @bcndp political appointees. #bcpoli Image
The executive committee is generally cabinet-appointed. Deputy Minister @DonZadravec spent 10 years at National PR and was a lobbyist for a pipeline company. #bcpoli #cdnfoi Image
The Assistant Deputy Minister's Office of Strategic Communications is now headed by Sage Aaron, @jjhorgan former communications director who was transferred from the Premier's office in September. #bcpoli #cdnfoi Image

🧵#ThisIsWhyIFOI Remember Dr. Bonnie Henry at the @Canucks home opener? I asked @bcndp #bcgov under #FOI about who paid for the jersey and other expenses. Many readers wonder about the PHO attending such commercial events. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #FOIAFriday #SportsBiz #covid19 ImageImage
This morning, @bcndp #bcgov tells me it has rejected my #FOI request about Dr. Bonnie Henry at the @Canucks game, because she was allegedly there as a private citizen, not because she is the provincial health officer. Where have I seen that lame excuse before? 🤔#bcpoli #cdnfoi Image
Last year, Dr. Bonnie Henry co-authored a book with her sister. When I wanted to know about the contract and other details, I was told I couldn’t see them. The “private citizen” excuse was invoked. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #FOIAFriday…

@Carol13 @dockevinmcleod Hi Jazzy. You hit the nail on the head. #BCGov #PHO #MOH are *not* giving us info. I believe nurses who tell us they are *over* whelmed. Protests should be aimed at those making the regs. Why target those who are working so hard to care for everyone/vaxxed or not. 1/
@Carol13 @dockevinmcleod 2/Think about it - someone who refuses vax for no reason except "my body/my right" are protesting the very people who are trying to help everyone. If one of us has heart attack/or needs emer. surgery or care for any reason - there is no beds/no staff.
@Carol13 @dockevinmcleod 3/ Did you hear how Saanich Hospital closed it's emerg. dept because no staff?…

🧵@adriandix made Telus CEO Darren Entwistle a special advisor to @BC_EHS. Dix and Entwistle have a bond and Entwistle is one of B.C.’s top corporate minds. While other telecoms invested in media and sports, Telus went aggressively into healthcare. #bcpoli
The Telus 2020 annual report management discussion and analysis reveals how important the healthcare sector is to Telus. #bcpoli
Even more about Telus health from the 2020 MD&A. #bcpoli

🌡🧵So there you have it. @drbonniehenry misled us again. I asked via #cdnFOI and the @bcndp Ministry of Health under @adriandix says it has no provincial government heat emergency plan. #bcpoli #FOIA @BCLiberalCaucus @BCGreens #heatdome #heatwave
That letter refers to a @CDCofBC 2017 publication, which shifts responsibility to the regional health boards and municipalities. #BCGov has a nuclear emergency response plan (among others), but no top-down plan for a heat emergency. #bcpoli #cdnfoi…
Horgan, Henry and Dix fiddled while home burned #bcpoli #heatwave #heatdome…

🧵Can we believe @bcndp pandemic data? #BCgov has under-tested and made #covid19 case/death reporting errors along the way. I wanted to know how many and whether they were corrected. This is about science and history. I filed an #cdnFOI request last July. #bcpoli #GiveUsData
I asked for B.C.-wide and health region correction and revision notices for March-July 2020. The original due date: Sept. 14. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #coronavirus #GiveUsData #FOIA Image
Instead of documents, I got a bill for $270. Less than two weeks before @jjhorgan took time off from the #coronavirus pandemic and called a very costly snap election. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #FOIA Image
