  • Overview

    Newfoundland and Labrador had three premiers in a single year-- three and a half, if you count Frank Coleman. An elected politician broke down crying on live radio. In less than eighteen months, the Official Opposition went from six to sixteen members.For Canada's easternmost province, the lead-up to the 2015 general election was the most turbulent time for politics in at least a generation, and Telegram reporter James McLeod had a front row seat for the whole strange spectacle. As the political reporter for Newfoundland and Labrador's largest daily newspaper, McLeod was there for all the big moments and interviewed all the key players.In Turmoil, As Usual, McLeod gives an an inside look and an unvarnished account of the people, the strategy, the gaffes and the farce that make up Newfoundland politics.

  • About the Author

    Born and raised in Toronto, Ont., James McLeod came to St. John's, NL for a six week unpaid internship in the spring of 2008. Seven years later he still hasn't found his way home. He covers politics full time for the Telegram newspaper, an occupation which appears to be leading to significant hair loss.
