The firing of New Brunswick’s chief medical officer has raised questions among the community about possible corporate influence on government and has prompted corporate giant J.D. Irving to demand the removal of a CBC article.
CBC New Brunswick has published an article about Dr. Eilish Cleary, who was put on leave — and subsequently fired — from her job as the province’s chief medical officer.
