Pundit and former provincial New Democrat legislator David Schreck told us he hasn't fired the first shot in a possible future battle to unseat Carole James. This, after proposing the party develop regulations for the election of a new leader. But, speaking on Public Eye Radio, Simon Fraser University public policy analyst Doug McArthur offered a different interpretation: "David is a very clever and smart fellow. This is the first shot. This is the opening of the door. And no one should be fooled by that. It's encouraging the party and membership to start talking about a leadership contest. And that's fine. But this is the beginning of the questioning in the New Democratic Party."
