ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A provincial byelection for the Labrador riding of Cartwright-L'Anse au Clair has been set for June 25.

Lisa Dempster will represent the Liberals, Dennis Normore is the candidate for the Progressive Conservatives and Jason Spingle is running for the NDP.

The seat became vacant after former Liberal member Yvonne Jones stepped aside to run and later win the federal riding of Labrador.

There are 36 Tories, five Liberals, five New Democrats and one Independent member in the legislature.
