Hospital Imposes Interview Sanctions

The Regional Health Science's Centre denies it's treating city news outlets differently when it comes to granting interviews.   Our newsroom was not allowed an interview with Peter Myllymaa the head of corporate services, over possible plans for parking expansion,  unless we provided questions in advance.   A hospital spokesperson says Myllymaa was caught off guard by questions from an earlier interview with another news outlet, and so the sanctions were put in place for subsequent exchanges.  However it's Acadia Broadcasting's policy not to provide questions in advance of any interview.
