Earlier, we reported pundit and former provincial New Democrat MLA was looking for a constituency association to sponsor a resolution requesting his party "develop and ratify, no later than December 1, 2010, appropriate regulations for the election" of a leader using its six-year-old one-member, one-vote system. And, in an interview this morning, David Schreck confirmed all three North Shore constituency associations have adopted that resolution.
Earlier, Mr. Schreck said that resolution wasn't the first shot in a possible future battle to unseat Carole James. But Simon Fraser University public policy analyst and former New Democrat administration deputy minister 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."
