Liberal Health Minister Patty Hajdu slandered a journalist as “dangerous” and “fake news” during Thursday’s question period for shining a light on recent coronavirus data. “Mr. Speaker, do you know what will help Canadians’ lives? If the member opposite and the leader of the opposition stop their members from sharing fake and dangerous news like the member from Lethridge and the member of Carleton stay focused on saving lives of Canadians instead of spreading conspiracy theories,” said Hajdu. Among the reports Hajdu cites as “fake and dangerous news” includes a column by Toronto Sun columnist and True North contributor Anthony Furey which was shared by the Conservative MP for Lethbridge Rachael Harder. In his column, Furey cites official government statistics and medical professionals on coronavirus comorbidities.
