Current MHA: John Hickey (PC).

District profile: Redistribution has changed the territory of former Naskaupi district, but the voting population stayed pretty much the same in Lake Melville, which includes Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Churchill Falls, North West River, Sheshatshiu and Mud Lake. Happy Valley-Goose Bay is a service and defence town. Aboriginal issues, defence spending, hydroelectric power and control over development of forest resources make this one of the more interesting districts in the province.

Did not change in the 2007 redistribution.

Population: 10,299.

Political history:

2003: Hickey ended a decade of Liberal dominance in the district, winning a tight race. The Labrador Party's Brandon Pardy placed second, losing by 290 votes. Liberal incumbent Ernie McLean, minister of Labrador and aboriginal affairs, had decided not to run again.

1999: McLean held the seat again, defeating PC Hayward Broomfield.

1996: McLean defeated PC Darlene Gear-White in the newly named district of Lake Melville.

1993: Liberal Ed Roberts defeated PC Dennis Conway in Naskaupi district. Roberts did not run in 1996. Roberts won a 1992 byelection. Currently lieutenant-governor of the province.

1985-1992: Liberal Jim Kelland won Naskaupi in the 1985 and 1989 elections. Served as environment minister between 1989 and 1991.

1975 -1985: Progressive Conservative Joe Goudie won Naskaupi in the 1975, 1979 and 1982 elections, and sat in cabinet between 1979 and 1985.
