Mowat: More Information Required on e-Health Security Breach

People deserve to know if their personal health records have been accessed 

SASKATOON - The recent serious security breach for Saskatchewan’s e-health records highlights the Sask Party government’s failure to keep people’s personal health information secure and private. The government has been slow to identify and acknowledge the breach publicly and appear not to be pursuing any more information on who was affected.

With 42 of 44 residents at Lakeview Pioneer Lodge in Wakaw testing positive for COVID-19 - two of which have already died - the Opposition demands answers to ensure this deadly outbreak will be contained and will not happen again in another facility. 

Official Opposition questions for the first COVID-19 briefing of 2021

At 2:00pm today, Sask. Party Health Minister Paul Merriman will join Dr. Shahab for the first COVID-19 briefing of 2021.

The confidence of Saskatchewan people in their government’s approach to the pandemic has been shaken by the government’s defense of former Highways Minister Joe Hargrave and his trip to Palm Springs, which was only reversed after mounting public pressure and a nation-wide scandal. The people of Prince Albert and all of Saskatchewan still deserve a full explanation and a public apology from both the Premier and the former minister.

But there are also a number of pertinent questions that this government must answer for in its day-to-day handling of COVID-19. Families who have followed the rules and done their part deserve real answers.
