While geographically enormous, the riding of Labrador is actually the least populated in the country, being home to just over 30,000 people. Prior to the 2011 federal election, no party but the Liberals had won the riding going back to when Newfoundland became Canada’s 10th province—with the exception of a brief Tory interlude between 1968 and 1972. So when Peter Penashue took the riding away from Liberal MP Todd Russell in the 2011 election, it was a bit of a coup.

Their polling, conducted by Strategic Communications, pegged the NDP’s support at around 48 per cent among decided voters when the race began, compared to about 30 per cent for the Liberals.

The “repayment” of those expenses had earned Duffy praise from the Conservative caucus for doing the right thing, and he got off comparatively easy in a subsequent committee report. At first the message from the party was that Wright had also done something laudable in sticking up for a friend and saving the taxpayers from footing the bill.
