In an interview this morning with Public Eye, Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson said Carole James kicked him out of caucus during a phone call that happened at 9:15. Then, a little later, New Democrat MLAs had a conference call to discuss the issue. So does that mean Mr. Simpson was expelled without Ms. James consulting caucus? It certainly looks that way, with the now independent legislator releasing a media statement stating he found it "troubling there was no process before I was convicted and removed from Caucus by the Leader."
