When did they know - Part 2

When did the Premier know?

As Bond Papers noted on Sunday, the premier knew in July 2005, shortly after the health minister learned of problems with cancer testing at Eastern Health.

“I am aware of the fact the communications director on or about the same time when this issue was brought to my attention did in fact notify the premier’s office,” [former health minister John] Ottenheimer testified. Ottenheimer’s communications director at the time was Carolyn Chaplin.
