REF NO.: 24

SUBJECT: Post-provincial election analysis to take place at Memorial University’s St. John’s campus

DATE: Oct. 5

This PSA replaces previously issued PSA No. 21.
            Who won, who lost and why? Who won the air war, the online war, the ground war? What does the future hold for the province's political parties and their leaders? Who are the most promising new MHAs, who is going into cabinet, and what should the leaders watch out for? What new public policies can we expect? What happens next with Muskrat Falls?
            These and other questions will be discussed in an interactive evening of analysis and insider views about the 2011 campaign.
            Panelists Chris O'Neill-Yates, senior reporter, CBC; David Cochrane, provincial affairs reporter, CBC; Lana Payne, president, NL Federation of Labour; and Tim Powers, vice-president, Summa Communications, will begin with brief opening statements followed by questions from the audience. This discussion will take place the day after the election, Wednesday, Oct. 12, in the Engineering lecture theatre from 7:30-9 p.m. Parking will be available in lot 16.
