Earlier, in exclusive interviews with Public Eye, provincial New Democrat legislators John Horgan and Harry Lali confirmed they didn't sign a form supporting a controversial affirmative action resolution being debated at this weekend's party convention. Asked about the matter, caucus whip Katrine Conroy said she's talk with both legislators about their decision "and any issues that arise like that stay within the caucus whip's office." But what about suggestions the party has used pressure tactics to get MLAs to sign onto that resolution? "That's Harry's choice of words. That wouldn't be mine."
