St. John’s, NL (August 31, 2018) – Today Ches Crosbie, PC Leader and Candidate for the District of Windsor Lake, is raising concerns regarding the leak of confidential information relating to the on-going harassment investigations being conducted on two suspended Liberal MHAs.

“This week, there have been multiple public leaks of confidential information relating to the on-going harassment investigations,” said Crosbie

“It is of utmost importance that the public, in addition to all members of the House – especially the complainants -- have full confidence in this investigative process. The leaks that have emerged are destroying confidence in this process.”

Crosbie refers to a recent media report by Don Bradshaw of NTV News, featuring an interview with suspended Liberal MHA Eddie Joyce. This report revealed the filing date in which MHA Tracey Perry submitted a complaint to the Commissioner for Legislative Standards regarding Joyce’s conduct. This information is confidential and has not been previously disclosed.

“To my knowledge, the only individuals with this information would have been the complainant, the individual(s) whose conduct the complaint was regarding, and the Commissioner investigating this conduct. The source of these leaks must be examined immediately to ensure the process has not been compromised,” added Crosbie

“I am calling upon the Premier to join me in raising these concerns, and ensure that we are holding politicians responsible for inappropriate conduct. Enough is enough.”

Crosbie is reiterating his call for the House of Assembly Management Commission to meet as soon as possible to directly address these issues.

“A meeting of the Management Commission should happen as soon as possible to allow a discussion about these issues with the Commissioner and to better understand what has occurred.” said Crosbie
