LILLEY: Trudeau Liberals need to show their work on COVID decisions
Canadians deserve the truth about what information, which data sets, are driving decisions made by the federal government to deal with the pandemic. Unfortunately, we aren’t getting the truth because even when the opposition or the media ask for it, the government refuses to release information or says they don’t have it. The Trudeau government should be ashamed that provinces across the country — and even municipal governments like Toronto and Ottawa — release more detailed scientific data to back up their decisions than the feds. For many decisions such as those regarding border restrictions and mandatory hotel quarantine for some air travellers, this government makes rules based on politics while invoking science, even when the science isn’t there.
