St. John’s, NL (May 26, 2020) –PC Natural Resources Critic David Brazil is joining industry’s call for the Federal Government to provide immediate support to the offshore oil industry.

“The offshore oil industry in this province has clearly spoken. The industry needs help from the Federal Government and this help must come now,” said Brazil. “Today we heard from every area of the industry. We heard that with help, the industry has the potential to become a world leader, putting our residents back to work in an environmentally responsible manner. This is a vision which our Party supports.”

Brazil continued to call upon Federal Minister of Natural Resources, Seamus O’Regan, to make sure that help is delivered to our industry. “The time for action is now, Minister O’Regan must implement a series of initiatives, investments, and must do so immediately. Any failure to support the industry is the failure of Minister O’Regan to support his own province.”
