Earlier, we reported New Democrat provincial secretary Laura Nichols will be leaving her job in January. But whoever replaces her as the party's top staffer may have a different title. Some have suggested changing it to executive director as part of a move to modernize the New Democrats, breaking away from language that seems more at home in Soviet Russia than twenty-first century British Columbia. If such a change were to take place, it would require a resolution to be introduced at the New Democrats' upcoming convention.
