Which Furey are you?

So, I’ve been working on a book. For over a year now, usually on or waiting for flights or while the kids are at music, I’ve been typing away at this story. It began as a recollection of how Team Broken Earth started after the earthquake in Haiti in 2010. How this Newfoundland and Labrador charity has grown from three of us to well over a thousand volunteers from three countries. It’s been an emotional trip recalling all the pitfalls and little victories over the years. But there was also another unintended consequence that came from the writing. 

Thinking about this journey has made me look closer at who I am, closer still at where I’m from. Physically. Spiritually. How it’s influenced me in every decision I’ve made. How much of it is who I am. Sure, I’m a proud Canadian but I usually will say I’m an NLer first when asked, purely out of habit. Newfoundland and Labrador is very much my heart.

As far as I’ve travelled in the world, there is no better feeling than making that last descent into the YYT airport. Coming in over the southside hills and the harbour. Or the approach over the White Hills where you see that massive rock wall jetting out of the angry Atlantic. Or in over Conception Bay, past Bell Island. Every time is like the first time seeing it. The lights sporadically clustered in tiny coves. The ribbon of orange lamps rolling along the Harbour arterial. It’s hypnotizing to me. Night flights are especially wonderous. I love seeing the communities in coastal inlets or at the edge of some long arm of land. It may make others feel isolated. Not me. I know the warm hearts beating in all of those places. That the good people there would drop whatever they were doing if you needed help (think of Lanier Phillips and the wreck of the USS Truxtun). That, no matter what, they look for the good in everything and everyone.

Arrivals are special here. The hugs go longer. No one can stand still as they anxiously await a loved one to appear. Allison took one of my favourite photos here. I was flying back from my first medical mission to Bangladesh. The photo is of my youngest, Mark. He was maybe 4 years old at the time. He’s sitting crossed-legs on the floor. Head in hands, looking at the escalator, waiting for me to arrive. Coming home is equal parts of the place you love and people you never want to leave again.

I’ve been fortunate enough to travel extensively through our province. When I was younger, it was with dad and my uncle while they were on the campaign trail. That’s probably why Allision and I love loading up the car with kids and exploring. Here, the journey is often the most fun part of the destination (stopping at Joey’s Look Out or a local convenience store where you’re lucky enough to still find homemade bread). I’ve completed medical work in Labrador and have a special place in my heart for the big land. In my clinics, I’ve met people from every corner and craggy cove, from Cartwright to Trepassey. I always enjoy appointments that start with a quick investigation into the question of “so which Furey are you?” 

Yes, this place is my heart and I care deeply as to what’s happening here and where things are going. I worry as much as the next person about the economic storms we’ve faced and the ones we have ahead. It’s in these moments, I not only see the faces of my children but of every person across the province as well. The uncertainness is like an unknown infection and the diagnosis is not clear. That weighs on me as I’m sure it does you.

With premier Ball’s announcement last week, there has been a lot of discussions and conversations as to what will happen next. Who will step up? The media has speculated many names, including mine. It’s a lot to consider. It’s a huge responsibility for anyone to take on. We need someone who will put worried minds at ease but clearly find that direction onward. Allison and I have spent the last week discussing this next step. We both feel that public service is important. We both feel a strong sense of commitment and love for Newfoundland and Labrador. And we both want our kids and others just like them around the province to feel that they have opportunities here at home.   

Which Furey am I?  I can tell you this: I’m the one who will always stand out front for this place. I have always been compelled to take action when I have felt there is a need. So far in my life, that has taken me to some far-reaching places in the world. Today I am focused on what is needed here at home. As Nan would say, put the kettle on. There is a lot to think about and it is going to be a busy week.

Best,

Andrew

Hi Andrew. I appreciate your comments, but might I suggest that we need to devise a long term strategy and plan to take us out of the financial hole we are in. We need to think outside the box on this. The challenges are too big for mere cuts in government spending. We will need to be more creative and imaginitive than that. No suggestion should be considered too outrageous until subjected to due examination. Yes government spending has got to be a consideration, but I question the value of indiscriminate budget cuts. Instead we should be asking, where could we be spending smarter? Nor can we ignore the revenue side of the equation…but i am not just talking taxes. What services are being provided by government and their agencies that are underpriced? Also, should we have legislated spending limits tied to say our GDP? Finally I wish to point out that perhaps the Province’s creditors have a role to play here as well. Just some things to be thinking about from a strategic perspective. Finally, we will need someone with the courage and intestinal fortitude to follow thru on that strategy in the face of what will likely be almost demonic opposition from anyone who is adversely affected by it. This of course has political implications, which to some degree has been a contributor to our current financial predicament. The four year election window and the short term thinking it fosters is not helpful. This is not about us…it is about our children and our children’s children.

Your words about NLs future are true. Our concern is for our children and future generations. This province has been gutted by greed of our elected people and Big Business. It will take a lot of energy and strength to stand up for honesty integrity and the common working man. I am concerned about Andrew because He is honest hardworking and has a ton of empathy in his soul. Politics is a rotten job and changing that into a positive will zap any soul. Andrew is pure and dedicated and deeply committed to any cause he takes on. I pray to God he thinks and ponders a lot before he places that hat on his head. God Bless You Andrew Furey.

Andrew this is a lovely blog and a great read. As a person who worked incredibly hard to get dwight ball elected and now feels completely disappointed with his performance on many levels, here quickly are my thoughts

If you really are ready to do the needful for the long term benefit of the province…. if you are strong and confident enough to not be managed upwards and sideways by the bureaucrats and your handlers… if you understand that many will never appreciate that you are acting in their best interests regardless of what you say or do… then GO FOR IT. Otherwise you are better off continuing and building on the work you are now doing. You can be proud of that for sure. But please do not be another weak, kick the can down the road leader. We just can’t bear it. Good luck to you!

I have a lot of respect for your work as a surgeon, but being a politician is different work. Think carefully about this next step and ask “should I do this just because my family did?

I have watched and admired from afar your work with Team Broken Earth. Your abilities as a surgeon are the only reason I can walk, unaided, down the street. To leave those extraordinarily worthwhile pursuits to enter political life in this province would be a great sacrifice. But it is one I hope you make because Newfoundland and Labrador needs someone who understands how to lead by example, someone with integrity, and someone who is more interested in people and relationships than power and legacy. All the best to you and your family as you consider this unexpected path.

As your patient for more than 10 years, I have seen the kind and compassionate person that quietly shakes the hand of all. If I were thinking only about myself I would say; no don’t go, we need you, your expert hands are needed in the OR, and I personally sit waiting on the list. But I too love this province and have been that child in the back seat poking around those outport communities. I am still that child poking around our beautiful province, approaching every place with wonder and awe as I see it through the eyes of my own family. We have had conversations in clinic about the journeys of Newfoundland and we both agree that this is a special place. If there is anyone that can help this province gain strenght again, I know it’s you. As much as I would prefer to he your patient and as I await your expert hands in the OR, I also feel comfort and safety to place our home in your hands.

Andrew, your personal achievements and contributions to improving the circumstances and lives of many so far, are commendable. Pursuing a challenge to govern NL at a time when the future, when measured by our past, is bleak, is “nothing to be sneezed at” and is something you must really want for one reason only, which is, you truly believe that this contribution, like the others, will be “life changing” for many.

Dr Furey,
I remember when my son Shane broke his leg off below the knee and we brought him to the HSC and after a day or two he had to go for surgery and I went with him as far as I could go to the OR.
Standing there with him as he lay on a stretcher all ready to have his leg fixed when this young guy walks in and says hello to both of us! I said, can I ask who you are? He replied, I’m the surgeon who’s going to fix your sons leg!
I replied, looking kinda stund at him!
Your only a young guy, I said, your not a surgeon!
He held out his hand to shake mine and said , I’m Dr Andrew Furey and I am the surgeon who will fix Shane’s leg!
He asked where we were from and I said Calvert…he replied, I just fixed a crushed ankle from someone from your area!
I was taken aback as the doctor looked so young!
Dr Furey, I have looked up to you ever since and my son Shane’s leg is perfect and stronger than the other one as he had many follow up appointments with you after the surgery and you always reassured him!
Thank you very much for looking after my son and thanks as well for all you have done and continue to do!
Regards
Kevin Walsh

As the old saying goes :absence makes the heart grow fonder: and I feel sure you ave experienced this. Should you run for leader of the Liberal Party, I hope you will not completely forget about Broken Earth. Nothing can be as rewarding, in my opinion, as helping others especially those who need help so much and not expecting anything in return. Helping others and not expecting anything in return is a sign of genuine caring and love. I hope that whatever decision you will make will fulfill your need to help others. Good Luck as you weigh your options.

Dr. Furey. The news that you are considering a run for the office of premier of our province brings a ray of light to a dark, uncertain future, that most Nlers are very fearful of. And for good reason! For too long we have been lacking in dedicated, strong leaders committed to the future welfare of our province. This lack of firm commitment and resolution finds us on the brink of bankruptcy. We are indeed in desperate straits and sorely in need of a leader whose unenviable job is to lead us out of this morass. Your reputation as a renowned physician and your dedication to the needy, as well as your love for our province makes you an ideal candidate for the premiership of our Newfoundland and Labrador. If you decide to take on this onerous task you will ring in a new day and a promising future to our beloved province.

I was a patient of yours back around ten years ago. You replaced my shoulder. I too remember saying to you. “You are too young to be a doctor” you looked to me as if you just finished high school. You told me, you were married and had 3 children. I could not believe it. I said, well I will have to put my trust in you. When I was going into the OR, you said jokingly. ” you are my first patient”.you didn’t let me down. I have been following you ever since. I am not surprised that you are writing a book, as I read all your blogs and have thought to myself, wow this man has many talents, he should write a book. You are a very honest, compassionate and caring man and would certainly make a great leader of our province. I wish you luck in what ever route you decide to take.
