Elation. That was the mood at Scott Simms’s headquarters in Grand Falls-Windsor as the numbers from poll after poll racked up a resounding victory for the Liberal candidate.

"I hope this is the start of a red wave across the country," Simms said to his workers at 9:30 p.m., as it became clear that the Liberal party would sweep Newfoundland and Labrador, on a tide that would push through Atlantic Canada.
By 10 p.m., the incumbent Liberal MP was making his fourth election-night victory speech since his first win in 2004.
“Humbled,” was the word he used to describe his landslide victory tonight, as the MP for the new riding of Coast of Bays–Central–Notre Dame.
As poll after poll result poured in at the Grand Falls-Windsor campaign headquarters, Simms took to the podium to pronounce that the results from his new riding was sending a message to the country that, “We are a force to be reckoned with.
“The red wave starts right here,” he said before a boisterous crowd of supporters. “The people of this riding have looked at Stephen Harper and said, ‘get out, we’ve had enough.’”
Simms added that winning this election is, from his perspective, just step one.
“Step 2 is that over the last six months I have met and had conversations with a really inspirational leader and that’s Dwight Ball.
