Last week, in 24 hours, Public Eye reported the provincial New Democrat's affiliation committee had its last meeting on August 30 where they approved a final report on the controversial subject. In an interview, party president Jeff Fox said "we are anticipating we will get (the report) in the next couple days and in anticipation of that we've set up some meetings and briefings with the executive." A copy of the report will then be distributed to provincial council members in advance of its upcoming weekend meeting. But what exactly is in said document? We don't have an answer just yet. Although, according to our operatives, labour representatives on the affiliation committee were none too happy with the fact the report was approved via majority vote rather than consensus.
