Copies of the provincial New Democrat's affiliation report were distributed to Opposition members yesterday, Public Eye has learned. In an interview with your humble organ, party leader Carole James confirmed MLAs discussed that report yesterday. But she said, "Caucus isn't taking a position on the report - like specifics in the report. They're going to let the discussion happen at provincial council" - which is scheduled to meet this weekend. Ms. James also confirmed she has read the report, adding "I support change. And I think there's change there. And I think the discussion needs to go to provincial council so that they can have a go at it and see what discussion takes place." And would she reveal the contents of the report? "No," Ms. James said with a laugh and a smile.
