What is the Liberal government hiding?
Dr. Theresa Tam has received much well-earned criticism for her handling (mishandling) of the CCP Coronavirus Crisis.
Her advice has shifted repeatedly, and it often seemed she was focused on political correctness rather than on the measures necessary to protect Canadians.
That said, Patty Hajdu has arguably been worse.
Not only has Hajdu been wrong on literally every aspect of the virus response, but she seems unable to even acknowledge her repeated mistakes. At least Tam has admitted the government should have shut the borders earlier, whereas Hajdu had claimed border controls in a pandemic ’cause harm,’ one of the dumbest statements of all time.
And now, it’s even worse.
During a meeting of the government operations committee, NDP MP Matthew Green asked Tam if she had advised the government on the emergency national medical stockpile being underfunded.
Then, stunningly, Hajdu interjected, blocking Tam from answering and saying it was ‘confidential.’
“At gov’t operations committee NDP MP Matthew Green asks Dr. Tam if she ever advised the gov’t that the national stockpile was underfunded or not properly mandated to stock PPE, Health Min Hajdu interjects before Dr. Tam answers, says cabinet discussions are confidential.”

As many have noted, if the answer to this question was at all good for the Liberals, it already would have been reported.
Hajdu is clearly hiding something here.
And we can easily suspect what that is.
The incompetence of the government, particularly in their claims that they were ‘prepared’ and then being forced to desperately try to grab up any bit of personal protective equipment they could get after giving a bunch to China, leads us to believe the government knew the stockpile was insufficient and failed to take action.
By hiding the truth from Canadians, Hajdu only deepens the incompetence and disgrace she has shown in her role.
