NDP Justice Critic Gerry Rogers

Recent events surrounding the incarceration of an Inuk protester are the latest evidence to that the province’s justice system is not working for all the province residents, says NDP Justice Critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre). She says government must undertake a review of how the provincial justice system interacts with indigenous people.

 
NDP Critic for the Status of Women Gerry Rogers

If this week’s announcement of new Nalcor board members is any indication, the province is not likely to see any improvement in existing inequities in representation, says NDP St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers. Rogers, who is also the NDP Critic for the Status of Women, says the new board has just three women out of 11 members, no Aboriginal people and nobody who lives in Labrador.

NDP Transportation and Works critic George Murphy (MHA, St. John’s East) says the state of the highways in southern Labrador points to years of neglect by government.
