Michael Kergin co-authors an op-ed in The Globe and Mail on the right of the House of Commons to order the federal government to produce documents, without redactions, on the firing of two scientists from the level 4 National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg.
Michael, Greg Fyffe and Jim Mitchell say this is, "A critical debate will take place in the new year to determine the impact on our national security of disseminating highly sensitive intelligence. The consequences could be severe. If the wrong decision is made, and the government allows the House of Commons to decide which classified material can be given to MPs or made public, Canada’s access to intelligence from allies and sources of information could be gravely endangered."
