(February 14, 2021) – : PC Leader Ches Crosbie is calling on Chief Electoral Officer Bruce Chaulk to halt his national media tour and take the time to speak to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador and the
political parties taking part in this general election.

“While the PC Party welcomes the extension of the special ballot deadline in response to our request, Mr. Chaulk has yet to convene a meeting with provincial parties to answer questions and address the concerns that remain during this election campaign,” said Crosbie.

“Mr. Chaulk has spent more time speaking with national media than local media. Political parties and the people deserve to hear from Mr. Chaulk directly and should get the information first.”

The PC Party of Newfoundland and Labrador issued a letter to Mr. Chaulk last evening that outlines the numerous concerns still remaining about the election process, says Crosbie. He says it’s time for Mr. Chaulk to sit down with all parties and address them.

“Mr. Chaulk’s first duty is to protect the voting rights of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, not to make surprise appearances on the national news networks. It’s time for Mr. Chaulk to address the concerns
directly to the people of the province and to convene a meeting to answer questions from the parties,” said Crosbie.

“This election is too important for Mr. Chaulk’s continued avoidance of these critical issues. We need a meeting as soon as possible.”
