Brief visits from leaders and a 'foregone conclusion'

While Quebec and Ontario have been important battle grounds for the federal leaders, they've spent little of the 40-day campaign in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer both made quick campaign stops in the province.

New Democratic Party Leader Jagmeet Singh visited St. John's prior to the start of the election in early September, while Green Party Leader Elizabeth May was in the province in late July.

The leaders efforts are a reflection of election results Memorial University political scientist Kelly Blidook has called "a foregone conclusion" for most of the province.

Justin Trudeau on Wednesday will officially kick off what is set to be a grueling campaign for a second term as he takes on surging rivals in Canadas October 21 The election campaign can then officially begin, although political leaders and parties have already been wooing voters with pre- election ads

The Liberals took a clean sweep of Atlantic Canada in the 2015 election, including all seven seats in Newfoundland and Labrador. Yvonne Jones and Gudie Hutchings both coasted to victory with more than 70 per cent of the vote in their respective ridings.

The most hotly contested riding in the province will likely be St. John's East, where Liberal incumbent Nick Whalen and former New Democrat MP Jack Harris are anticipated to battle it out.

Whalen bested Harris by less than 1.5 percentage points in 2015 — a seat Harris held for the NDP in the 2008 and 2011 elections.

Trudeau, Scheer and Singh all spent their brief visits to the province in the St. John's East riding.

But with Newfoundland and Labrador trailing every province and territory other than Nunavut in voter turnout in the last two federal elections, and low turnout in advanced polls this time around, there'll be extra work for campaigns and candidates to get voters out to the polls.
