Recount Begins in Isles of Notre Dame

November 7, 2007

A judicial recount into the election results in the district of the Isles of Notre Dame begins today in Grand Falls - Windsor. Derrick Dalley of the Progressive Conservatives was declared the winner on election night, defeating Liberal leader Gerry Reid by seven votes. According to the Elections Act, a judicial recount is automatic when the margin of victory is ten votes or less. Madam Justice Kendra Goulding will preside over the recount proceedings in the Supreme Court. Two days have been set aside for the procedure.

I wonder will this recount bring an end to our 2007 General Election? This has been a strange one and who knows? Maybe the people of that district will be back to the voting booth in December!
