980 CKNW – Speaker offers to rescind gag orders on fired B.C. staff

Employees fired in recent years from the legislature for trying to blow the whistle on a spending scandal may soon have their gag orders lifted by Speaker Darryl Plecas.

Plecas intends to cancel the non-disclosure agreements that some of the 20 terminated legislature staff were forced to sign in exchange for severance, as long as those people were employed directly by the legislature
