PC Opposition Leader Ches Crosbie was surprised to hear Liberal Premier Dwight Ball ask who people would rather have negotiating with Ottawa.

St. John’s, NL (January 11, 2019) – PC Opposition Leader Ches Crosbie was surprised to hear Liberal Premier Dwight Ball ask who people would rather have negotiating with Ottawa.

Crosbie was reacting to comments Ball made to Rotary Thursday, in which the Premier asked which leader people would rather have negotiating with Ottawa.

“When it comes to negotiating with Ottawa, you could hardly find a more fruitless negotiator for Newfoundland and Labrador than Dwight Ball has been,” said Crosbie.

“He gave up on Equalization reform, gave away the fisheries fund, gave away the marine technology Atlantic headquarters, caved on the carbon tax and spent four years failing to get Ottawa involved in rate mitigation – measures that together could have brought this province billions of dollars a year.  Other provinces are doing just fine, but not ours, because there’s been no fight in Dwight.”

Crosbie said the Premier once again left his audience wondering why he still doesn’t have a plan for electricity rate mitigation.  “He’s had his entire term to come up with a mitigation plan, but he still doesn’t have one, and has started lifting our ideas.  It’s time to cut out the middle man.”
