After numerous incidents in recent weeks and days that have sparked outrage, exposed patronage, and revealed the further erosion of our province’s democratic process, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Premier Dwight Ball has lost the ability to effectively lead the province in the best interest of the people.
With the most recent announcement of the blatant partisan hiring of Carla Foote into yet another position within government, coming on the heels of information made public involving a high-value contract to a former Liberal staffer, plus numerous other injustices designed to serve a party and not the people, NL Alliance sees no choice but to invite all elected MHAs, and every Newfoundlander and Labradorian to join us, and formally call for the resignation of Premier Dwight Ball, due to his obvious gross negligence of Newfoundland and Labrador’s best interests.
“It is time for this current government to be held accountable for their blatant neglect of all things honest and transparent. A government, barely holding on to power, but yet continuing to make such moves, is nothing more than a mockery of the democratic process, and an insult to every person in this province,” said NL Alliance Leader, Graydon Pelley. “I believe, as a people, we need to stand up for what is right – not for a party but for our province. There is strength in numbers, and it’s time for us to unite and with one voice say ‘Enough is Enough!”
