Dempster Wins By-Election for The Liberals
Lisa Dempster is the new MHA for Cartwright L’anse au clair.
The provincial Liberals have held onto a traditional stronghold in Cartwright-L’Anse au Clair.
Lisa Dempster took more than fifty-three per cent of the vote in last night’s byelection, holding off a solid challenge from the N-D-P.
With the victory, the Liberals will again have six M-H-As in the house of assembly … one more than the New Democrats.
Liberal Leader Dwight Ball says he’s happy to keep the momentum going from recent poll results.
Dempster ended up with 1,141 votes, to Spingle’s 703. PC candidate Dennis Normore was a distant third with 287 votes. Lisa Dempster joins us by telephone.
