St. John’s, NL (January 31, 2019) – PC Opposition Leader Ches Crosbie said while motorists continue to be at risk of moose-related accidents on our highways, the Liberals are still not willing to act to install moose fencing.

They failed to include moose fencing in their 2019 Updated Five-Year Provincial Roads Plan, released on Wednesday.

Crosbie said, “A government I lead will build a minimum amount of moose fencing on a yearly basis to protect motorists from collisions.”

SOPAC (Save Our people Action Committee) has been advocating for moose fencing for years, saying it will save lives – but for years, the Ball government has said only that they will think about it.

Linda Bishop, Chairperson of SOPAC and a trained Registered Nurse, said, “Thinking about fencing will not save lives.  Installing moose fencing will.  So why is the government continuing to stall?”

As a lawyer, Crosbie represented SOPAC members in a moose vehicle class action.  He remains steadfast in his commitment to protecting motorists from moose-related collisions by building moose fencing along the highway.
