Hot take: Graydon Pelley won the 2019 NL election. The whole point of the was for a more collaborative government. If the minority holds, the Liberals have to work with the other parties/MHAs. Not bad.

. calls Bonavista for PC Craig Pardy. There'll be a recount in Labrador West, so it could change, but as it stands right now, there is a minority government in Newfoundland and Labrador for the first time since 1971 (which lasted a day, btw).

It's still close in Mount Scio (160 vote lead for LIBs), but it looks like it's going to come down to Bonavista on whether the Liberals get their majority. PC Craig Pardy with a 34 vote lead with one poll remaining.

The battlegrounds right now are Stephenville-Port au Port, Bonavista, Mount Scio. As it stands right now, according to NTV, 20 for the Liberals, 15 for the PCs, Three for NDP, two IND. That's not a majority, folks. What do Eddie Joyce and Paul Lane do now?
