🧵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
In December, I pleaded for a fee waiver. This is about the public interest. I cited the @BCOmbudsperson report about the Ministry of Education’s disinformation. All ministries must be held to the same standard, must communicate accurately to the public. #bcpoli #cdnfoi
Under duress and with diminishing faith in @McEvoy_Michael to stand up for freedom of the press (guarding privacy is his priority), I agreed in February to narrow my records request to the month of March 2020. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #GiveUsData #covid19
So I wait and I wonder about the accuracy and reliability of the #coronavirus pandemic data @adriandix and @DrBonnieHenry have delivered to British Columbians. It’s about history and it’s about science. It’s about your right to know. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #covid19
The punchline? Our premier, John Horgan, said this on Nov. 18, 2020: “We're not hiding anything. We have been as transparent as any jurisdiction in North America."
I call BS. You’re not doing your level best, @jjhorgan.
