Furey’s First 100 Days Prove Liberals Have No Plan to Create Jobs, Rebuild Economy
Ches Crosbie, Leader of the PC Official Opposition and MHA for Windsor Lake, says Andrew Furey’s first 100 in office prove the Premier is in over his head with no plan to create jobs, rebuild our shattered economy, or help struggling families.

St. John's, NL (November 27, 2020) – Ches Crosbie, Leader of the PC Official Opposition and MHA for Windsor Lake, says Andrew Furey’s first 100 days prove the Premier is in over his head with no plan to create jobs, rebuild our shattered economy, or help struggling families.

“Our province desperately needs a plan for jobs and the economy, but the Liberals have wasted Andrew Furey’s first 100 days in office apologizing for Justin Trudeau and taking care of their well-connected friends,” said Crosbie. “Furey’s own budget projected 13,000 job losses this year – a clear admission that, when it comes to our economic recovery, he’s already given up.”

Crosbie says the Liberals should be fighting for Newfoundland and Labrador’s interests in Ottawa, not serving as a cheer leading squad for Justin Trudeau.

“Like Premier Ball before him, Premier Furey praised Seamus O’Regan and the Trudeau Liberals despite their flat refusal to support jobs in our oil sector,” Crosbie added. “We’ve been hemorrhaging jobs on Premier Furey’s watch, but he has failed to stop the profuse bleeding.”

Other failures raised by Crosbie to mark Andrew Furey’s first 100 days include:

Offering no plan for the additional protection of point-of-entry testing for COVID-19, even though a federal government-funded scientific study cited clear evidence of its effectiveness;
Refusing to answer tough questions from Opposition MHAs and reporters;
Failing to discipline a Liberal MHA who allegedly disclosed cabinet secrets;
Stalling on calling an inquiry into Innu children in care and on the tragic death of Burton Winters;
Giving a pass to a Liberal MHA who made highly offensive comments about Indigenous Labradorians;
Failing to deliver on rate mitigation, fiscal stabilization, or equalization reform; and
Refusing to implement a community benefits agreement that would put more Newfoundlanders and Labradorians back to work.

Crosbie says a government led by him would maintain a laser-like focus on the issues that matter most to Newfoundland and Labrador families, starting with implementing an action plan to create jobs and rebuild our broken economy – issues the Ball-Furey Liberals are all too happy to ignore.

“It’s do-or-die time for the Newfoundland and Labrador economy,” says Crosbie. “I’m building a strong, energetic, ethical Progressive Conservative team that understands the challenges we face. We will offer the people of our province a plan to create jobs, grow the economy, and put families first.”
