PC Official Opposition Pays Tribute to John Hickey


The PC Caucus is sending condolences to the family and friends of Happy Valley-Goose Bay mayor John Hickey, who passed away Thursday evening following a tragic hunting accident.


Paul Davis, Leader of the Official Opposition said, "John Hickey was a passionate Labradorian, representing Labrador for many years in the House of Assembly and around the provincial Cabinet table in the ministries of Transportation and Works and Labrador Affairs. He was a champion of the Northern Strategic Plan for Labrador, which made major investments throughout Labrador to advance economic development and improve people's lives. Through his service at the local and provincial level, he advanced the well-being of Labradorians in very significant ways and made a lasting contribution to our province."


"John was one of a kind, with a voice that was always strong and unwavering, and a great love for his family and the Big Land - that is something that will be long remembered. We are saddened at his sudden passing and send our deepest condolences to his family and friends‎," said Davis.
