Earlier, we exclusively reported the provincial New Democrats are paying party president Moe Sihota a stipend using a "generous, earmarked gift from the labour movement." In an earlier interview, British Columbia Federation of Labour head Jim Sinclair said his group has contributed $4,000 toward that gift. But the British Columbia Government and Service Employees' Union hasn't put any money towards it. And, in interviews yesterday, spokespeople for the Hospital Employees' Union and the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1518 said those groups aren't part of the gift givers. So who is?
