(March 3, 2021) – Ches Crosbie and Tony Wakeham today expressed their sympathies, on behalf of the Progressive Conservative Party of Newfoundland and Labrador, to the loved ones of Jim Hodder, a longserving Member of the House of Assembly for the Stephenville-Port au Port area, who has passed away.

Elected for Port au Port in 1975, Hodder served as MHA from 1975 to 1993, and again from 2003 to 2007. In the caucuses of Brian Peckford, Tom Rideout, Len Simms and Danny Williams, he served as Parliamentary Assistant to the Premier; Minister of Cultural Affairs, Tourism and Historic Resources; Parliamentary Secretary of the Resource Policy Committee to Cabinet; and opposition House Leader.

Crosbie said, “Jim Hodder was one of the long-serving Members of our House of Assembly – highly regarded by people on all sides of the House, and loved throughout his district.”

Wakeham said, “For a remarkable 21 years, Jim served the people of this region with a very personal, hands-on touch that earned him the respect and admiration of people throughout our region. People are talking about his legacy and remembering a truly great individual who always had a place in his heart for Stephenville-Port au Port. He will be greatly missed.”
