Norman Doyle

Norman Doyle was born in Avondale, a small community in Conception Bay about fifty kilometres from St. John’s. After working in construction and business, he entered into a career spanning nearly three decades in both federal and provincial politics. He was elected to the House of Assembly in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1979 and re-elected in 1982, 1985, and 1989. He served as a cabinet minister in Municipal Affairs, Transportation, and Labour until he left the provincial House in 1993. Norman entered federal politics in 1997 as the Member of Parliament for St. John’s East. During his twelve years in the House of Commons, he served as the Progressive Conservative Party whip, chair of the national caucus for both the PC Party and Conservative Party, and also chair of the national Immigration committee. He was also elected four times at the federal level, racking up eight back-to-back wins in both federal and provincial politics. Norman Doyle was appointed to the Senate of Canada in 2012. He is a member of the Internal Economy Budget and Administration Committee and the Transport and Communications Committee. He currently resides in St. John’s and is married to Isabelle (née Hannifan). They have two sons, Deon (Denise) and Randy (Joy), and two grandsons, Thomas Randell and William Norman.
