Minister of Public Services and Procurement Anita Anand and Minister Jean-Yves Duclos addressed risks related to document disclosures on Canada’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic on Monday, arguing commercial and proprietary information is at risk with full disclosure of contracts.
Minister Anand, when asked about why the Liberal government couldn’t fully disclose its COVID-19 pandemic-related contracts to the public, argued lives could be at risk if suppliers shied away from Canada because they felt their sensitive information was at risk of being disclosed.
Minister Anand also stated that the government had already disclosed nearly $6 billion worth of COVID-19 pandemic related contracts.
The opposition parties are expected to pass a Conservative motion today that would launch a parliamentary probe of the Trudeau government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Official records on a raft of issues related to the government’s handling of the pandemic would have to be handed over to the House of Commons’ health committee.
