Furey must release PERT members from NDAs now

(January 26, 2021) – PC Leader Ches Crosbie and Robyn LeGrow, PC Candidate for St. John’s Centre, say it’s time for Andrew Furey to release members of the Premier’s Economic Recovery Team from their non-disclosure agreements and allow them to speak freely about the contents of Moya Greene’s report.

“If the Premier is unwilling to direct Dame Greene to release an interim report before Election Day, there are other ways he can be transparent with the people of the province about his secret plan for lost jobs and big cuts,” said LeGrow. “Unmuzzling the members of his Economic Recovery Team is a good place to start.”

LeGrow says Premier Furey must allow members of the committee to speak freely about their secretive work so voters can make an informed decision on February 13.

The PC candidate noted the terms of reference for the team is silent when it comes to public consultation and open debate following the report’s release. PC Party Leader Ches Crosbie says the people of Newfoundland and Labrador deserve to know the truth.

“Day by day the people of Newfoundland and Labrador become more worried about the Premier’s secret plan,” said Crosbie. “And yet, instead of being transparent with voters, the Premier continues to double-down on his ‘just trust me’ approach.”

Crosbie reiterated his call for the Premier to come clean before Election Day. “The Premier needs to tell us what he’s hiding,” said Crosbie.

“I have confidence in the people of Newfoundland and Labrador to make the right decision if they’re presented with all the facts. Premier Furey should share in that confidence, too.”
