The first round is over, and the strongest contenders have been identified. Now you get to choose your favourite from a list of 10 possible replacements for Lieutenant-Governor John Crosbie.
In July we asked you to help the PM choose the successor to John Crosbie as lieutenant-governor of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Crosbie’s appointment is expected to end in early 2013 and Harper is likely mulling over his options.
We asked who you thought deserves the honour of being named the next lieutenant-governor of the province?
Online nominations at www.thetelegram.com closed as of July 31. After careful scrutiny and tabulation we unveiled a full slate of nominees.
In the full spirit of modern democracy, we have had our share of technical challenges. In spite of that, we have identified the top 10 vote-collecting answers for the final, hopefully trouble-free, vote.
