Gerry Byrne Withdraws Comments #nlpoli


Minister of Fisheries and Land Resources and MHA for Corner Brook, Gerry Byrne, has withdrawn his comments after days of saying his comments were not wrong.

On Wednesday Byrne said that he withdrew his accusations about two MHA's Jim Dinn and Jim Lester.

The House of Assembly proceedings were put on hold for two days while the House was trying to decide whether or not to reprimand Byrne.

The comments in questions were ones he made about MHA Jim Lester alleging that he condoned moose poaching and that MHA Jim Dinn didn't rebuke comments about Indigenous people.
