Statement by Premier King on the passing of Honourable John Crosbie

Premier Dennis King issued the following statement on the passing of the Honourable John Crosbie:  

“I was saddened to hear about John Crosbie’s passing earlier this morning. He was a fiery advocate for his home province of Newfoundland and Labrador and for our country during some of their most pivotal times. 

He was also a great friend to Prince Edward Island during his time as a federal cabinet minister and as a member of the Confederation Centre of the Arts board of directors. His sharp wit, brilliant mind and passion for Atlantic Canada will be dearly missed. 

Our condolences are with the Crosbie family and all who were touched by John’s legacy.”

- Premier Dennis King
