Newfoundland and Labrador's political landscape has shifted following the results of Thursday night's election, with the province's first minority government in place since 1971.

But it's the environment of election campaigns and "push polling" that need a closer look, says Liberal Gerry Byrne.

"We're going to have to have a discussion about this," said Gerry Byrne, speaking with CBC after being re-elected in the district of Corner Brook. He said polls are increasingly more political than scientific, and are often used as a "weapon."
