The provincial New Democrats are "now faced with a post-election cash flow crunch and debt that, while not unanticipated, was significantly more than had been expected." The reason: according to a report prepared for the party's biennial convention by treasurer Cheryl Hewitt "donations from individuals and subsequent constituency fundraising was challenged by economic conditions and acute donor fatigue by supporters who had just come through federal and municipal elections." As a result, Ms. Hewitt states "the Provincial Executive Finance Committee has begun meeting regularly to develop and implement a plan to pay off our election debt expeditiously as possible."
