Health Minister Patty Hajdu upset members of the House of Commons Health committee by only allowing them 45 minutes to question her on the government’s handling of the pandemic. According to Blacklock’s Reporter, the Health Committee had asked Hajdu to appear for two hours to discuss the government’s handling of the pandemic. Hajdu instead agreed to 45 minutes in front of the committee, using a significant portion of her time to give a speech. “In the last year from my perspective, the government is seeing this review process and scrutiny as an inconvenience. It’s actually fundamental,” said Conservative MP Michel Rempel Garner. “She’s asking Parliament to spend billions of dollars. It seems a little ridiculous to me. In fact it seems a little contemptuous. How can you not?”
