Davis addresses region's business community


Premier Paul Davis acknowledged his government has taken several “bold” steps since taking over the province’s reins roughly a month ago.

Touching on a number of topics during his address at the Burin Peninsula Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Awards in Marystown Tuesday, Davis told those in attendance he isn’t afraid of trying things differently.

He suggested thinking outside the box is a strategy that often leads to success in business.

“I’m leading by the same practice, and I expect ministers and my supporters to have input. I expect you to have input,” he said, referring to the business community. “Sometimes we’re going to do things that we need to adjust and tweak and change, and I’m willing to do that.”

Davis had a busy schedule during his first visit to the Burin Peninsula as premier.

Accompanied by local MHAs Darin King and Clyde Jackman, the trip included tours of the new health clinic for residents in the northern region, the site of the future dementia unit in Burin and Marystown’s new recreation complex, as well as a pair of funding announcements in Grand Bank and Fortune.

The premier also acknowledged work on the Hebron project at Kiewit Offshore Services in Marystown is presently peaking at roughly 1,200 jobs.

“These are exciting times right here in the Burin Peninsula region,” he said.
