Weekly Wrap Up - October 22, 2010

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* the British Columbia New Democratic Party has said it's paying party president Moe Sihota a stipend using a "generous, earmarked gift from the labour movement." According to Jim Sinclair, the head of the British Columbia Federation of Labour, Mr. Sihota solicited those donations from the labour movement;

* sources have said four of the last six provincial New Democrat presidents didn't receive a stipend from the party, even though the office's present occupant has said it's a "tradition" for labour to make "donation to provide" such a benefit;

* the provincial New Democrat constituency association in Fraser-Nicola has approved resolutions calling for Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson's reinstatement to caucus and a leadership convention in 2011; and

* rumours of government reorganization and a cabinet shuffle.
