Aylward Chosen as New NL Liberal Leader

Former minister Kevin Aylward will lead the Newfoundland and Labrador Liberals into the next election (coming up this October) after he was chosen among 7 candidates to replace Yvonne Jones, who stepped down due to medical issues.

He's a former environment minister and has "concerns" over the Muskrat Falls project, which I have a feeling will please at least one blogger. Good wealth of experience and should prove an interesting match-up with current Premier Kathy Dunderdale and NDP Leader Lorraine Michaels.

However, his ascension does ruin the fact that Newfoundland and Labrador would've had a woman as Premier no matter what the results were in October. It's a shame, but it happens.
