Frank Coleman

Another two provincial cabinet ministers are getting behind Corner Brook businessman Frank Coleman in his campaign to become the next Progressive Conservative leader.

Justice Minister Darin King and Education Minister Clyde Jackman announced their support Wednesday via press release.

“Darin and Clyde have worked in unison to promote the interests of the people of the Burin Peninsula and I applaud what they have accomplished for that area of the province,” Coleman stated. “They have also demonstrated solid leadership in their cabinet positions, and I welcome their support.”

King and Jackman said they like what they have heard Coleman say about the importance of securing the future for rural communities.

To date, six cabinet ministers have endorsed Coleman for the leadership. In addition to King and Jackman, those supporting Coleman are Steve Kent, Charlene Johnson, Derrick Dalley and Paul Davis.

    Don't you have any other current pictures of Frank Coleman? The picture makes him look like MR. CLEAN. On a more serious note he is not the man to run this province. No political experience in his background, most likely value to the Progressive Conservatives is probably a puppet in the house of assembly. Lol.

    Oh good, Minister King, the teacher who knows nothing about the justice portfolio, adding money to police services, adding money to Legal aid and cutting personnel on the prosecution side. Minister Jackman thinks that a "pro-cheating" policy is appropriate, and can't create a simple anti-bullying policy that does not punish the victims. Mr. Barry should be very happy to see these two clowns endorsing Coleman. In fact, it should be apparent to any tory that looking for someone with new fresh ideas should mean looking at a candidate that the old tory hacks are not endorsing, otherwise, they are going to get the same quality of leadership that saw Dunderdale leave with her tail between her legs.
