St. John's, NL (January 14, 2021) – Tony Wakeham, PC MHA for Stephenville-Port au Port, says a Progressive Conservative government will follow through where the Liberals failed and deliver a PET Scanner to the Corner Brook Regional Hospital.

“The residents of Western Newfoundland and Labrador are watching as Gerry Byrne and John Haggie say different things, while pretending to agree. For us, there is no ambiguity. We’ll deliver a PET scanner for Corner Brook,” said Wakeham, a former CEO of Labrador-Grenfell Health.

“A Progressive Conservative government will follow through and deliver that PET scanner to the Corner Brook Regional Hospital: a promise is a promise,” he said.

Wakeham says the matter has already been studied by government, the infrastructure already part of the existing plan, and the benefits of increasing accessible healthcare to the Western Region many.

“The residents of Western Newfoundland and Labrador are calling out for help and the Furey Liberals are responding by breaking a promise,” said Wakeham.

“If the Liberals can’t trust their own healthcare promises, then how can they ask Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to trust them on anything else?”
