Re-elected Newfoundland and Labrador premier Danny Williams had to cancel media interviews yesterday because he's developed a medical condition called dysphonia, .
That is, he's lost his voice.

If the loss of voice were to persist, however, Mr Williams would be well advised to see a physician: chronic dysphonia can be caused by some nasty things, like cancer, a foreign body in the esophagus or trachea, mononucleosis or other things.
In the province's election, on Tuesday, the Williams-led Progressive Conservatives won a lopsided victory, grabbing 43 of 47 seats in the legislature.
