The results for the Liberals are not quite as bad as some predictions that had them at 0! Maybe Ed Stelmach can learn what the results in popularity are for standing up to Big Oil and also Big Harper!

Danny Williams and his Progressive Conservatives won a landslide victory in Newfoundland and Labrador on Tuesday night, with a massive lead over their political opponents.
A buoyant Williams said he was "truly, truly overwhelmed by what has happened here tonight," and added he was humbled by the magnitude of the landslide.
From the start, the PCs were polling about 69.5 per cent of the vote, giving the CBC's decision desk confidence in projecting a second mandate about 20 minutes after the polls closed.
At the end of the night, Williams's Tories had taken 43 seats, the Liberals 3 and the NDP 1.
