Not Really News...

No surprise at all with the results out of Labrador. One of the safest Liberal seats in Canada is defended, albeit with the reduced totals you'd expect in a bi-election after a tough year by the party in power. The Conservatives field a high profile candidate and pour a lot of resources into the riding so they, quite predictably, increase their total substantially.

There's a lot of talk about how this was such a crucial seat given how close Parliament is right now. But, truth be told, it doesn't change a heck of a lot. The Liberals won the last vote on a tie-break and this just means we'll avoid a tie-break in the future. Now, should something happen with the health of a few MPs, it could become a crucial seat to have but, for all intents and purposes, Chuck Cadman still has the whole world in his hands.
