Another argument over cameras in a court of law

In this case, an inquest into the death of a man in a Winnipeg hospital after waiting over 30 hours for treatment. One of the odder arguments against is from the nurses’ union, that nurses will quit rather than undergo questioning on camera. I thought they could be subpoenaed anyway, cameras or not. And the testimony process can be nerve-wracking whether or not cameras are allowed. Anyway, it would be nice if there was some overarching direction across Canada on whether to allow cameras in court/quasi-judicial hearings, instead of always being case by case.
