(Executive Council)

The following statement was issued today by Premier Danny Williams:

Today, Newfoundland and Labrador has lost one of the most dedicated and passionate individuals to ever serve this province. Former Premier and Member of Parliament Frank Moores, was a wonderful leader and esteemed businessman who served this province tremendously. He was committed to making Newfoundland and Labrador a better place, and we all owe him a debt of gratitude for his significant contributions as the province's first Progressive Conservative Premier.

He was a beloved father, grandfather, husband and friend, and on behalf of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, I wish to extend sincere and heartfelt condolences to all of those whose lives he touched. He shall forever be remembered for his trademark warm, broad smile and as a proud Newfoundlander, who worked diligently on behalf of the people.

Flags at all provincial government buildings will be maintained at half mast in a demonstration of respect and appreciation for former Premier Moores.
