Yvonne Jones, former provincial Liberal leader and a well seasoned Liberal politician has won Labrador for the Liberal Party with a rate of over 48.2%.
Here are the detailed results.
Polls counted: 91/91
In 2011, former Conservative cabinet minister Peter Penashue won the Liberal stronghold with a margin of only 79 votes. When the robocall scandal first made its rounds, Labrador was one of the close ridings listed for investigation.
On March 14, Penashue resigned the seat after acknowledging he had accepted 28 illegal donations.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper tried to help Penashue's campaign telling Labrador that he was the man for economic development but given his economic record and an investigation into Penashue's campaign's illegal actions in the last election, Labrador was all but lost.
The Liberals now gain a seat in the House of Commons to have 36 and the Conservatives lose one to have 164.
