PEI New Democrats Elect Mike Redmond Leader

 "The P.E.I. New Democratic Party elected Mike Redmond as the new leader of the provincial party Saturday afternoon in a landslide vote.

Federal NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is on P.E.I. this weekend for the provincial party's leadership convention.  Two people were in the running for Saturday's vote.

Redmond, facility director at the Murphy's Community Centre in Charlottetown, beat Trevor Leclerc, who stepped down as chair of AIDS PEI to run for the leadership, in a landslide vote of 152 to 28.

The NDP has not had much electoral success on P.E.I. but Redmond said he is optimistic that can change.
"We're going to make a difference," he said, "one day at a time, one project at a time, one cause at a time, but we are going to do it together. And we're going to form government in 2015."

Leclerc said he will focus on boosting party support both federally and provincially."
