Gerry Reid (born June 18, 1954 in Carbonear, Newfoundland) was the Leader of the Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador. He served as interim leader from 2005 to 2006, until Jim Bennett replaced him in February 2006. Reid was reelected as leader of the party on May 29, 2006, after Bennett resigned due to differences with the Liberal Party caucus.
On October 9, 2007, in the general election, he led the party to its worst showing in the province's history with just 3 out of 48 potential seats. Reid was also defeated in his own riding by Progressive Conservative candidate Derrick Dalley, by a margin of twelve votes. Reid announced his departure from politics and resignation as party leader on November 13, 2007. He was subsequently replaced by MHA Yvonne Jones as interim leader.
