    Thursday, February 19th, 2015 NEWS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MP Andrews Calls for Independent Audit of Marine Atlantic Today in the House of Commons, MP Scott Andrews questioned the government’s handling of Marine Atlantic in response to a large volume of concerns raised about the efficiency and reliability of service provided by the crown corporation. “Marine Atlantic is without a doubt the single most important lifeline to the island of Newfoundland. However, in recent years the service has come under much scrutiny as travellers are finding it more and more difficult to travel to and from the province using the ferries. Delays, cancellations and high cost of travel have deterred many people from using the ferry and the cost of transported goods has also risen substantially in the past number of years,” said Andrews. Andrews has expressed concern that the corporation is not operating to its full potential and is costing taxpayers far more than it should. “By completing an independent audit we can ensure that the people of the province are receiving the best possible service on our ferries. Newfoundland and Labrador relies heavily on this service and it is the duty of the federal government to ensure that Marine Atlantic is the best option for travellers to and from the province in relation to goods and services.” – 30 –

    Today, Canadians from coast-to-coast are wearing red to show respect for Const. David Wynn who died last week after being shot in the line of duty during a routine licence plate check. This tragic event is a reminder of the dangers police officers face every day while on the job. My thoughts and prayers are with the Wynn family during this difficult time.

    Tomorrow marks the start of Minor Hockey Week in Canada. I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to the players, parents, coaches, staff and volunteers who work hard to provide for minor hockey associations throughout our communities. Hockey arenas from coast-to-coast are the focal point of many towns and provide more than just a place to play the game we so dearly love. They provide opportunities for our children to learn and grow while maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle. It is my commitment to work hard for you, ensuring every child has the ability to participate in organized sports.

    Pleased to have been in Long Harbour on Wednesday attending the ceremony to mark the first nickel off the production line at the VALE site. Great to see such a magnificent facility producing some of our many natural resources here in the province and creating jobs for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. Congratulations to VALE, the provincial Government and Town officials on a successful project!

    Yesterday the Nation came together to mourn the loss of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. The shocking events of last week saw us at our weakest, but we emerged stronger than ever before. Rev. Canon Robert Fead said it best during the funeral service: “He gave his life at the most sacred and hallowed ground in this country. His bravery, his sacrifice, is not in vain.” We stand together with the family of Cpl. Cirillo and all members of the Canadian Armed Forces as the continue to come to terms with such a difficult and tragic event.

    My statement yesterday in the House regarding the 65th anniversary of Newfoundland and Labrador joining Canada. March 31st, 2 p.m. Newfoundland and Labrador http://openparliament.ca/debates/2014/3/31/scott-andrews-1/ ---------------------------------------------------------- Mr. Speaker, 65 years ago today, Newfoundland and Labrador carved out one of the most significant parts of its history by becoming a province of Canada. At one minute after midnight, on March 31, 1949, Newfoundland and Labrador became the tenth province to join Confederation, or, as we affectionately say, Canada joined Newfoundland and Labrador. This date in Newfoundland and Labrador history saw the end of three years of intense and emotional debate, a debate inscribed in the history books of Newfoundland and Labrador and which still continues today in many kitchens and living rooms in my province. At the time, residents voted to join Confederation and made a very emotional decision to end their status as the oldest colony. My parents voted for the terms of union, and the terms of union that followed have influenced the relationship we share in Confederation and the way we are governed. While we can stand at any time to debate the management of the fisheries affecting the province, the transportation link, or its fair share of natural resources, today we stand as proud Canadians and proud Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. As Joey Smallwood believed, we also believe that Confederation was the beginning of a revolution in Newfoundland and Labrador. We continue to work hard to secure our place in Canada.

    Statement in the House of Commons on Friday, May 24 on the passing of Ray Guy and Gordon Seabright. -- Mr. Speaker, Newfoundland and Labrador have lost two prominent citizens. Although very different in character and nature, these two individuals were very proud of their native province and made a significant contribution to our society. Ray Guy, a native of Arnold's Cove, was a well-known journalist, humorist, writer and actor and a colourful critic of all governments. He studied journalism and then returned to Newfoundland to write for The Telegram. His career saw him as a local commentator on CBC, director of a stage play and an actor alongside Gordon Pinsent and Mary Walsh. Mr. Guy received national awards for his writings, the Steven Leacock Award for Humour and an honorary degree from Memorial University. Mr. Guy passed away at the age of 74. Condolences are extended to his wife Kathie Housser and daughters Rachel and Anne. Also last week, former provincial court judge Gordon Seabright passed away at the age of 79. Mr. Seabright was called to the bar in 1961 and appointed magistrate in 1964. Until his retirement in 1989, he was recognized for his demeanour, his sense of humour inside and outside the courtroom and his booming voice. He will be forever remembered as a colourful and spirited public servant who made a huge contribution to the delivery of justice throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Mr. Seabright was also a tremendous volunteer who worked hard for his community of Mount Pearl and also volunteered with provincial organizations, including VOCM. Our deepest condolences go to his wife Madge, their son Glenn and their family. http://openparliament.ca/debates/2013/5/24/scott-andrews-1/

    Standing up for the Cadet Program today..#SaveACGP. Here's my question today.. Mr. Scott Andrews (Avalon, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, the Conservative government continues its attack on some of the most vulnerable in our society. It has gone after our seniors, the unemployed and our veterans. Now it continues its direct attacks on another youth service, the Air Cadet gliding program. Will the minister commit here today to the 320 cadets who receive their pilot's licence each year that gliders will be available and that the government will continue to financially support this important cadet youth program? Hon. Peter MacKay (Minister of National Defence, CPC): Yes, Mr. Speaker, I will. In fact, there are no cuts to the glider program. Apparently a review is being done within the department that I have not seen to improve the experience of flying for cadets. I repeat: no reductions are planned and there are no reductions in place. I maintain, and I think all members would maintain, that this is the best youth development program that we have in Canada today. It produces some of our best leaders. It promotes good citizenship, community service and physical fitness among all young Canadians. The cadet program is here to stay under this government.

    NEWS RELEASE For Immediate Release March 5th, 2013 Real Disconnect - Closure of EAS Offices Scott Andrews, Member of Parliament for the Riding of Avalon, is concerned that the recent closure of EAS Offices indicates a real disconnect between the Harper Government and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. “On one hand, we have Stephen Harper telling EI recipients they should not be receiving benefits but working and the federal government will help them connect with jobs and training. While that’s happening, the province is closing the same offices that help those people find jobs and approve funding. Even now, the federal government is questioning the province on the value they’re getting from funding of training programs. It is a clear indication that the right-hand does not know what the left-hand is doing.” stated Andrews. Andrews further stated, “The Canada and Newfoundland Labour Market Development Agreement signed in 2008, states the services model delivered by the province must “facilitate ease of access” and the approach must “be guided by the fundamental principal of citizen-centred service”. I can only assume the federal government has agreed with this service delivery change and supports the closure of the EAS Offices. This is very unfortunate, and once again, hard-working Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are being penalized.” - 30 -
