Statement from PC Party Leader Ches Crosbie: February 12
Tonight’s confirmation of the “UK strain” of COVID-19 in our province is devastating. My heart goes out to all those who are infected, in isolation, and awaiting testing results this evening.

(February 12, 2021) – “Tonight’s confirmation of the “UK strain” of COVID-19 in our province is devastating. My heart goes out to all those who are infected, in isolation, and awaiting testing results this evening.

I want to thank Dr. Janice Fitzgerald for her leadership and urge all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to follow her advice. Rest assured, Progressive Conservatives will do so. Once again, the people of our great province are being called to come together while staying apart. While challenging times are ahead, I have every confidence we will succeed.

We will have more to say about what this means for our campaign and the broader provincial election in the days ahead.

Our province deserves a thoughtful conversation about why it took so long for us to reach the right decision in postponing this election and how we hold our political leaders accountable, but that discussion must wait for another day.

Now, it’s time to summon the fighting spirit of Newfoundland and Labrador and beat COVID-19.”
