Liberal leader Steven Del Duca on Thursday called the conflict of interest issues “conspiracy theories” and defended Stall’s decision to remain a member of the science advisory table.

“If the management of this table wants to continue to seek his advice as a volunteer, he has the respect of his colleagues.
