The Dangers Of Newfoundland Politics

The election campaign for Tuesday's vote, which has only been about three weeks long, if that - nothing compared to the Ontario marathon - has proved particularly worrisome for the liberal party.

From a slate of 47 liberal candidates, one has died and two have been hospitalized during the campaign.

Given that the Williams-led PC's are going to accomplish a near-total sweep of the province anyway, I'm not sure what the incentive is for these people to fight a losing fight, while apparently risking life and limb.

All the moreso after the shutting down of the constituency allowance freebies. Seriously, I don't see any rents here.
