(March 31, 2021) – Today the PC Party of Newfoundland and Labrador bids farewell to Ches Crosbie, who announced his resignation as party leader.

“Ever since he became leader of the PC Party on April 28, 2018 and was elected Member for Windsor Lake on October 12, 2018, Ches Crosbie has been what he has always been – a tireless advocate for the people, a champion of the underdog, a voice for the disenfranchised,” said PC Party President Eugene Manning.

“He was a terrible thorn in the side of the Liberals, and never gave them a reprieve when accountability was due. His legal expertise proved invaluable. He was the model of integrity. He brought a message that Newfoundland and Labrador needed to hear.”

Elected in a 2018 by-election to represent the District of Windsor Lake, Crosbie’s time in the legislature is defined by his relentless effort to expose government corruption, by his dedication to seeing Newfoundland and Labrador benefit from its rich natural resources, and by intelligent leadership of caucus.

“Ches grew up knowing his mother and father’s immense legacy, and his grandfather’s and great-grandfather’s, and he felt he could also make a difference in the public arena,” said Manning.

“He is definitely cut from the same Crosbie cloth. He is tenacious, a fighter, who pulls no punches and calls it like he sees it, even when others might be more diplomatic. But that’s what we’ve always respected about him. He is the model of frankness and honesty.”
