DWIGHT BALL “The people of our province want to see hard work, they want to see partnership, and they want to see humility. It is a great honour to be the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.”

Dwight Ball will serve his second term as premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Liberals secured a minority victory in Thursday night’s provincial election.

That means the conservatives will remain the official opposition. They say Ball shouldn’t get too comfortable.

CHES CROSBIE “Where with this end up? It will not end up with Dwight Ball as premier of Newfoundland in one year from now.”

Thats Conservative leader Ches Crosbie has vowed to form a coalition with the 3 NDP and 2 independent MPPs which could split the provincial seat count in half.

That’s assuming all the NDP candidates hold their position.

The New Democrats beat the liberals in one riding by just 5 votes, inciting a recount.  

More to on that in the coming days.


Same sex marriage is now legal in Taiwan.

Same sex couples are now able to join in what are being called “legal unions,’ which is not the same as heterosexual marriage.

The main difference is that same-sex couples will be restricted from certain tax, insurance and adoption opportunities available to heterosexual couples.  

This bill will be the first of its kind in Asia
