Acting Premier Announces Date for By-Election in District of Topsail

The Honourable Kathy Dunderdale, Acting Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, today announced that the by-election in the District of Topsail will be held Tuesday, March 16.

"I am pleased to announce that on March 16 the constituents in the District of Topsail will have the opportunity to vote for new representation in the House of Assembly," said Acting Premier Dunderdale. "We look forward to an energetic campaign by all involved and I encourage all residents in the District of Topsail to participate in this democratic process and to vote on March 16."
