Let there now be no doubt about the kinds of donors the provincial New Democrats are hoping will attend their upcoming fundraiser at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. The event list on the party's Website describes that function as "Night in the City: An Evening with Carole James and the BC NDP Team." But the dinner has a different billing on the Web page where the $295 tickets to it are being sold: "Night in the City: An Evening with Carole James for Business in BC." The page also states attendees will enjoy an "evening of food, wine, and lively conversation" with Ms. James "and the leaders of our province." It's unclear whether "leaders of our province" refers to members of the business community or presumptuous opposition MLAs who think they have the next election in the bag.
