For Immediate Release

 

St. John’s, NL (September 17, 2019) – PC Opposition Leader Ches Crosbie says that the Trimper recording still leaves unanswered questions about the inappropriate language from the other participant on the phone call.

The Premier says that the individual on the phone call is not an executive or a policy maker in government, however, he also says that he does not know her identity. It is impossible to make that guarantee without knowing the identity of the individual.

“The Premier is not credible when he says that while he does not know the identity of the woman who is called Jackie on the tape, she is not in an executive or policy making capacity. The public needs to know if the person who participated in the racially tinged comments works for government” says Crosbie.

“While cultural training as agreed with the Innu yesterday is welcome,” Crosbie said, “the last time Premier Ball committed to set up a working group, it ended in the methylmercury fiasco and the perception that Ball and Parsons acted in bad faith.”
