During our interview with Minister Chebat we also asked about the reports of the verbal abuses staffers reportedly endured last week as they were told to leave the building and go home. One of those persons is the Financial Officer who was told by the Public Service Union to remain on duty as the Minister does not have the authority to send any public officer home. We asked Chebat about it and he told us that the matter is just beginning.
Hipolito Novelo, Love News: Did you chase public officers from the Ministry of Health and Wellness, from the building, from their office ? They’re saying that you chased them and sent them home.
Hon. Michel Chebat, Minister of Health and Wellness: “Absolutely not true and I want to tell you that matter is just beginning. That matter will be ventilated in another forum down the road.”
Hipolito Novelo, Love News: What do you mean that matter ?
Hon. Michel Chebat, Minister of Health and Wellness: “The FO was transferred out of the Ministry and we had a conversation. The conversation she and I had was based on the budget it had nothing to do with anything else.”
