Conservatives, NDP, Bloc demand Liberals release Winnipeg lab files

In a united front, opposition parties are urging the immediate release of uncensored documents regarding the dismissal of two scientists at the national microbiology lab amid allegations that they collaborated with China.

The Conservatives, New Democrats, and Bloc Québécois collectively pressed on Thursday for the documents to be released as soon as possible. The push aligned with the recommendations of a special committee of MPs who reviewed the files and advocated for the content to be released publicly.

Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre joined the call with a post on X.

“Trudeau must release the documents related to what happened in Winnipeg. No more hiding. No more excuses. End the coverup,” he said.

The NDP and Bloc also joined Poilievre in his call for release.

“The NDP urges the government to comply with the recommendation of the special committee in charge of evaluating the information on the firing of the two scientists and release the documents,” said NDP House Leader Peter Julian.

Bloc Spokesman Julien Coulombe-Bonnafous called for the release of the documents, as recommended by the committee.

“It should be done in the next few days, and we encourage the government to do it as quickly as possible,” he said.
