The Newfoundland and Labrador party is a now defunct political party that was founded in 2004. It ran candidates in the 2006 Provincial election and the 2008 Federal election. However never attained much in the way of popular support, and achieved no electoral success. The party officially dissolved in 2011 as it was unable to garner enough members to retain legal status as a political party. During it's run the party had two leaders, Tom Hickey (2004 - 2008) and Wayne Bennett (2008 - 2011).
