Release Date: April 8, 2020



The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay and indeed all of Labrador, has called on Premier Ball to close off all non-essential travel to and from Labrador, except for essential goods & services and Medical Travel. These requests have come from all over Labrador and from all groups. The incident that occurred with Nalcor employees violating its very own protocols only serves to highlight the need to Stop all non-essential travel.


Initially, the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay had planned a “Motorcade” for Wednesday, April 8, 2020.  However, the Town was FORCED BY GOVERNMENT TO CANCEL.


The Mayor and Council remain resolute and steadfast in their message to the Premier.


“Stop The Spread – Close Labrador Down”


Labrador is united in this message, and we want to show Premier Ball and Government that we are expressing our concern and our fears of COVID-19 making its way to our communities.
