Apparently, New Democrats in British Columbia weren't the only party members who wanted to defeat the Campbell administration. Card-carriers from other provinces also got in on the act. According to financial reports filed with Elections British Columbia, the Alberta New Democrats contributed $4,808 by loaning out their provincial secretary Laura Nichols to come work as Carole James's anchor - the staffer responsible for scheduling the leader's cross-province campaign tour. And donations from the Ontario New Democrats and the federal New Democrats, totaling $8,020.81, paid the salaries of two imported day planners and travel costs for those out-of-province staffers.
