St. John’s, NL (July 10, 2020) – Ches Crosbie, PC Opposition Leader and MHA for Windsor Lake, is expressing concern with the pending “Canadian Bubble” which will potentially come into effect in mid to late July.

Crosbie says, “The Official Opposition has been advocating for months for enhanced screening measures at our points of entry but it continues to fall on deaf ears with this government. Why wouldn’t we implement an added layer of due diligence at our borders? We need to use every weapon in our arsenal to protect our population so that we can fully open our economy and get our health care system back to normal.”

Newfoundland and Labrador has limited points of entry which can be systematically controlled.

“The reality is we need to adapt and live with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future. However, it doesn’t mean that we can’t take reasonable precautions, like testing at points of entry, to prevent an event that will force us to close our economy yet again. We need to monitor compliance with self-isolation to ensure it is working as intended. The effects that this shutdown has had on people’s mental health, physical health, and livelihoods, will be studied for decades to come,” says Crosbie.
