(December 1, 2021) – David Brazil, PC Official Opposition Leader and MHA for Conception Bay East-Bell Island, today issued the following statement regarding the release of the Ground Search and Rescue Inquiry report.

“I want to thank all those who gave their testimony and time to this Inquiry. The heartbreaking stories of the loss experienced by families are paired with incredible stories of survival – my heart is with all those who have endured the pain of not knowing whether your loved one will come home.

While a review of the report remains underway, one thing is clear: these recommendations must be enacted as soon as possible.

While the search and rescue teams of our province are heroes and work hard to bring people home whenever they are called upon, these heroes need more support from the federal and provincial governments to ensure help is available when it is needed the most.

I want to thank Justice Igloliorte for leading this Inquiry and writing a thorough report with clear recommendations. The people of Labrador and everyone in our province need to have confidence in our search and rescue capabilities and I am hopeful this report is an important step towards that goal.”
