St. John’s, NL (October 9, 2019) – PC opposition leader Ches Crosbie today stated that public confidence in the mammoth cleanup of potentially millions of asphyxiated salmon on the south coast of the province is being shaken by an apparent absence of government oversight and information.

‘’The scope of this incident is far reaching and it should be used to improve best practice” said Crosbie. “A lack of information from both the provincial and federal levels of government amount to a failure to act in the public interest.”

Crosbie said: “The jobs and economic benefits from the salmon aquaculture industry and our wild fish stocks are extremely important to our province. The issue is how to preserve public confidence. Public confidence requires strong oversight and fulsome disclosure.”

 

“Minister Byrne’s handling of this issue has done nothing but further erode public confidence in this Liberal government,” Crosbie added.
