Election night in Newfoundland and the Yukon

With results now coming in from Newfoundland and Labrador the Progressive Conservatives appear to have been easily reelected. The NDP seems set to become the official opposition.

Later tonight, we should have results from the Yukon, where the Yukon Party is hoping to be reelected.

10:57pm. With six seats to the NDP’s five, the Liberals will remain the official opposition in Newfoundland. The New Democrats still drew a higher popular vote and their five seats are precisely five times as many as they had when the election was called.

1:00am. The Yukon Party holds on to its majority. The only movement from the 2006 result was for the New Democrats and Liberals: the former gaining three seats, the latter losing three.
