Joseph Goudie endorses Ches Crosbie for PC Leader

St. John’s, NL (December 1, 2017) – Joseph Goudie, former MHA for Lake Melville and provincial cabinet minister, has issued the below statement today endorsing Ches Crosbie for PC Leader.

“I am endorsing Ches Crosbie to be the next leader of our Progressive Conservative Party because I believe he has the experience, knowledge, energy and compassion needed to hold our present Liberal government to account,” said Goudie

“Further, I know Ches has a deep understanding of the issues facing our province, including here in Labrador, and will take all appropriate measures to address them.”

Goudie served as the MHA for Lake Melville from 1979-1985, and held a number of senior cabinet positions. In addition to his political background, Goudie is known for his deep community involvement in Labrador. This includes serving as the President of the NunatuKavut (formerly Labrador Métis Association), President of the Labrador Heritage Society, and Chair for the 2006 Labrador Winter Games.

“I am confident that, come 2019, Ches will be able to put forward a strong team, equipped with fresh policies, to form the next government of Newfoundland and Labrador.”

Goudie joins former PC cabinet minister Dan Crummell who endorsed Crosbie last week. In addition, Crosbie has been endorsed by former PC Premiers Tom Marshall and Tom Rideout, and Memorial University’s PC and Conservative student associations.

The next leader of the PC Party will be selected during their party convention scheduled for April 27-29, 2018.
