Here we go again government causing trouble. What in the name of God was wrong with the name Province of Newfoundland? Now we have it official, Newfoundland & Labrador. Soon someone will want,Nova Scotia and Cape Breton or maybe BC & Vancouver Island. All it will take is a few childish politicians (as if they are not childish enough already)or a few jealous people.

Well the Nova Scotia mainland isn't called Nova Scotia- it`s called the Nova Scotia mainland.

Newfoundland was the name of the island before Labrador accompanied it, so it`s only fair to recognize labrador in the name of the province since the people in both areas are now represented in the province. Newfoundland is the name of the island, and keeping the word "Labrador" out of the title of the province makes it seem as though Labrador is a colony, rather than a partner.
