ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - An election is two years away but the campaign started Sunday for Liberals in Newfoundland and Labrador, who chose a new leader as polls suggest a political shift in the province.
Dwight Ball, the former interim provincial Liberal leader, won the race on the third ballot in a preferential voting system.
"We are ready to govern, and together we will build a brilliant future for Newfoundland and Labrador," he told about 300 cheering supporters in a hotel ballroom in St. John's.
"I will not let you down."
