Ghiz... Ghiz... where have I heard that name before?

The new Ghiz government will likely give fairly decent government to Prince Edward Island. It will be interesting to see if, as in the days of Joe Ghiz, PEI begins to punch above its weight again. Note the lopsided split in votes/seats. The Liberals scored a respectable 52% of the vote, and won five times as many seats as the Tories. In a proportional rep system, the Liberals would have a bare majority. In our first-past-the-post system, it's an overwhelming victory.
