To say provincial New Democrat legislators are, without exception, satisified with their current leadership, would be...er...not entirely accurate. And MLAs may have an opportunity to act on some of their frustrations next month. The reason: caucus officer elections have been scheduled for February 9. As our astute readers may remember, last year's election saw maverick Yale-Lillooet legislator Harry Lali chosen as the caucus's deputy chair - which was seen by some as an indication of dissent. Mr. Lali has since become more outspoken in his belief that the New Democrats should be "pushing back much harder against the Liberals."
