NDP Leader Tom Mulcair launched his eighth week of campaigning to become prime minister in southeastern Newfoundland, where he dropped a fishing line to catch a cod. He also issued an apology for referring to Newfoundlanders nearly two decades ago in a derogatory fashion, saying he should not have used the word "Newfie" during a heated exchange in the Quebec legislature.
