The St. John’s Board of Trade is urging the City of St. John’s and Deacon Sports and Entertainment to find a way to allow the Newfoundland Growlers to play at Mary Browns Centre while the workplace investigation is being conducted.
 
The St. John’s Board of Trade believes that all employees have a right to a safe and respectful workplace and, as such, the investigation should be conducted as thoroughly and efficiently as possible.
