NL Party Loses Leader
July 28, 2008
The leader of the Newfoundland and Labrador First Party is stepping down. Tom Hickey says his resignation takes effect August 13th, which also happens to be the fourth anniversary of the founding of the Party. A committee has been put in place to find a successor. Hickey says the party plans to run candidates in the next federal election.
I have not heard much about the party except a young MUN student, Jordan Lester speaking on open line programs. I doubt if 5% of the people in NL have heard about it and even less for naming the leader. I suspect a list of names will be placed in a Pea Pudding bag somewhere near the Avalon Mall and a new leader picked. Surely someone can come up with a conspiracy theory about Tom leaving and the cancellation of The Independant.
