The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive can­di­date Glenn Lit­tle­john made a lit­tle his­tory Oct. 11 when he wres­tled the district of Port de Grave away from the Lib­er­als for the first time in a quar­ter-cen­tury.

The former mayor of Bay Roberts won by a mar­gin of more than 1,600 votes over his Lib­eral op­po­nent, Leanne Hussey.

“We got an op­por­tu­nity, we made the best of it, and hope­fully I can pro­vide the peo­ple of Port de Grave the rep­re­sen­ta­tion they ex­pect and they are used to,” Lit­tle­john stated.

The PCS won all five districts in the Trinity Con­cep­tion re­gion, and cruised to a lop-sided vic­tory in the provin­cial gen­eral elec­tion, win­ning 37 of the 48 seats up for grabs.
