Community activist Linda Bishop endorses Ches Crosbie’s leadership campaign

St. John’s, NL (December 21, 2017) –Linda Bishop, community activist and chairperson of SOPAC, is today endorsing Ches Crosbie’s bid for Leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Newfoundland and Labrador.

“I’m thrilled to support Ches Crosbie in his effort to become leader of the PC Party,” she says.

“I have come to know Ches in the last 10 years through his spearheading of the moose-vehicle class action. This province needs someone like him who is unafraid to tackle difficult public issues,”

“I have always been impressed by his competence, determination, kindness, and integrity. I am certain that he will bring more honesty to politics and do what is right to get this province on track to a bright future.”

Mrs. Bishop is the Chairperson of the Save Our People Action Committee (SOPAC), a former secretary and treasurer of SOPAC, and a trained Registered Nurse. Always willing to lend a helping hand, many people know her as a pillar of her local community. Recently, she helped to organize the gifting of a wheelchair accessible van to a family in need.

The next leader of the PC Party will be selected during their party convention scheduled for April 27-29, 2018. Residents must sign up with the party by January 28, 2018 in order to vote for their choice of leader.
