VICTORIA – The following statement from New Democrat leader John Horgan was released in response to the settlement announced Tuesday with Drs. Bill and Rebecca Warburton:
“The Christy Clark government has finally admitted to misconduct and wrongdoing in the remaining wrongful dismissals of health researchers.
“We are very happy for Drs. Bill and Rebecca Warburton, two outstanding researchers who were wrongfully smeared by Christy Clark’s government.
“The government’s actions had a huge cost for the individuals involved, and damaged health research in our province. Hopefully Bill and Rebecca can now fully return to their extraordinary work which benefits the lives and health outcomes of children, youth and adult British Columbians.”
