Rookie Conservative MP Derek Sloan is taking aim at Canada's Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Theresa Tam.

In a social media post, Sloan called for the removal of Tam and implied that she has been servile to "Chinese Communist propaganda." Attached to the post is a video, wherein Sloan asks "Does she work for Canada or for China?"

In a separate email, the MP for Hastings-Lennox and Addington employs nearly identical rhetoric to Trump and his far-right allies. He alleges that the World Health Organization (WHO) serves at the behest of the Chinese government and points to Tam's engagement with the WHO as proof of her subservience to a "foreign entity."
