Thanks for your support

I wish to advise the constituents of St. John’s South-Mount Pearl that, effective Oct. 27th, I resigned as NDP candidate for the federal riding, and as a member of the party — severing all affiliation. I’ve written several articles in recent months for publication and hope to write more, which creates a professional conflict. You cannot be a politician and a journalist — it’s one or the other. I’ve chosen to return to journalism, my profession of almost 20 years. I would like to say a sincere thank you to the people who have supported me politically. It’s been a humbling and eye-opening experience, and my passion and drive will continue to be directed towards the betterment of Newfoundland and Labrador.

We respect your decision Ryan. I enjoyed working on your campaigns and I'm pleased to call you my friend. Leigh and I wish you only the best.

I am sad to hear you are stepping down from political life but I wish you well in your career. NL would be a better and fairer place if all MPs were more like you. What publication are you writing for?

You'll have to let us know where we can find your future scribblings...
