St. John's, NL (August 9, 2019) – PC Leader Ches Crosbie is honouring Augusta Whelan, a PC Party stalwart, who passed away on August 6.

Crosbie said, "Every political party operates on the strength, enthusiasm and conviction of grassroots volunteers, and there was no greater or more greatly admired volunteer for the PC Party than Augusta Whelan. She and her twin sister, Monica Yetman (who passed away several years ago), were ‎known across the province through their participation at Party conventions and election campaigns, and for their many other contributions."

"Augusta was the kind of person who brought people together, made everyone feel welcome‎ and appreciated, and motivated everyone around her with warmth and enthusiasm that couldn't help but inspire. Many younger Party members, guided by her example, are continuing her legacy thanks to the time she invested in them."

"It is no surprise that Augusta had an exceptionally large circle of friends and family, and I express to all of them, on behalf of our caucus and party, our heartfelt sympathies as we remember her wonderful life and honour her legacy," he said.
