|The Conservatives dropped their candidate, Blair Dale, after his offensive comments surfaced online about women, abortion, and racial minorities.|
The Conservatives never had a chance here anyway and they would probably save a bit of cash by not bothering to find a replacement, but this all but solidifies the Liberal's hold on this riding.

|I am predicting all three Liberal incumbent MPs in Newfoundland and Labrador to stay. All three are journalists and know how to campaign.|
And what not to say.
Judy Foote gained a bit from redistribution and will be able to help either of Yvonne Jones or Scott Sims if they get into trouble. None of them however is going to make much of a dent in the NDP in St. John's.
