Much like the recent Ontario election, there's a big urban-rural divide in Newfoundland and Labrador.
PC - 40,143 (54.5%) - 10 seats
NDP - 28,879 (39.2%) - 4 seats
Lib - 4,606 (6.3%) - 0 seats
Rest of Newfoundland
PC - 86,322 (57.9%) - 27 seats
Lib - 36,815 (24.7%) - 6 seats
NDP - 25,438 (17.1%) - 1 seat
That's a pretty big disconnect between the two regions, though it shows that the Liberals are relevant outside of St. John's, which is how they managed to hold on to the Official Opposition.
So, what does this mean? For the NDP, it means they have a fantastic base in St. John's, but they need to expand outside of it before they make any major headway. The fact is they only increased their vote 4% outside of St. John's.
For the Liberals, they have major issues in St. John's, and their rural-focused campaign barely saved their asses. If they ever want the be relevant again, they need to work on St. John's.
And for the PCs? Well, one can say that Dunderdale doesn't need to worry - but the fact is, in a down year, which they will get eventually, they could face a strong urban swing from the NDP, and a strong rural swing from the Liberals. In the end, instead of the PCs dominating both areas, they could end up third as the other two parties play to their strengths and squeeze the PCs out.
