Last month, Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson was expelled from caucus for criticizing New Democrat leader Carole James. Then, caucus chair Norm Macdonald stepped down because Ms. James didn't consult with caucus about the expulsion. So, keeping that in mind, we'd like to draw your attention to the Penticton New Democrat fundraiser Messrs. Simpson and Macdonald will be attending later this month. They'll be speaking at the constituency association's Christmas dinner on the subject of "Post-partisan politics: how do we recapture the spirit of our democracy." Penticton is one of the associations that has passed a resolution calling for a New Democrat leadership race in 2011.
