Tory Leadership Contender Digs In On Attacks On Canada's Top Doctor - 2020-04-30
OTTAWA — Conservative leadership candidate Derek Sloan is digging in on his attacks on Canada's chief public health officer, now saying he believes Dr. Theresa Tam should be fired for having "very likely cost Canadian lives."
The freshman MP from Hastings—Lennox and Addington in Ontario attracted national attention last week when he questioned Tam's loyalty to Canada, condemning her handling of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as her work with an oversight committee of the World Health Organization (WHO). The UN body has faced scrutiny over its guidance to other countries after the COVID-19 outbreak began in China.
In an email, Sloan called the WHO a "puppet" of China, and claimed the UN body had "endangered millions of lives around the world by covering up the COVID-19 virus at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party."
