This is an outrageous situation. 8 BC gov't researchers fired, no reasons given but the gov't claimed there was a police investigation that, quite simply, didn't exist. One of the researchers committed suicide.
Yes, the gov't settled out of court, but there has been no *real* investigation into how decisions were made and who was responsible. Yes, there was an investigation of sorts, but the investigators could not compel testimony so it was not able to answer any of the major questions before it.
So - malice? Given that the highest levels of the BC gov't repeatedly lied abut the situation, I can only assume that there was some malice somewhere. After all, mistakes can be fixed. They weren't.
Are you outraged? I am.
