Years lived in Cor­ner Brook: en­tire life

A vet­eran of two pre­vi­ous terms on coun­cil, Bruce is ea­ger to bring his voice back to the coun­cil cham­bers af­ter a four-year ab­sence. He said he thor­oughly en­joyed his time on coun­cil and feels he still has a lot to con­trib­ute. He has con­cerns about how the out­go­ing coun­cil has not been as vo­cal as he would have liked.

“With the Beothuk En­ergy pro­ject, for in­stance, here’s a chance to pos­si­bly bring 600 good-pay­ing jobs and we haven’t heard a thing from any­one on coun­cil,” he said. “It blows my mind. I want to be the voice to make sure this thing comes to fruition.”
