This afternoon, provincial New Democrat conventioneers will debate a contentious resolution that would see 40 percent of the party's non-incumbent seats set aside for affirmative action candidates. Party leader Carole James has already announced her support for that resolution. And, during a caucus meeting just prior to convention, New Democrat legislators were urged to sign a form doing the same. But we're told a number of MLAs may have refused to do so at the time that form was presented.
