Earlier, we reported New Democrats in Vancouver-Kensington had submitted a resolution calling for increased transparency at the party's provincial executive meetings. That resolution would allow provincial council members to attend those meetings as observers. But it turns out that resolution is superfluous. The reason: in an email, party communications officer Michael Roy stated "any member in good standing of the BC NDP may attend a provincial executive meeting." Which, obviously, will come as a surprising to Vancouver-Kensington's constituency association.
