As our astute readers know, yesterday was the first time provincial New Democrats have had a chance to speak with one another face-to-face since their retreat in Penticton. And what did they discuss at that meeting? Well, our understanding is that much time was spent talking with John Pollard - the former New Democrat government's agencies, boards and commissions director - who has been advising the party on the work of the electoral boundary commission. And while we're encouraged to see the socialists finally taking such a keen interest in the commission, one wonders when they're going to get around to discussing political strategy for the upcoming fall legislative session - or lack thereof.
