New Democrat leader Carole James's supporters made it easy for reporters to identify potential dissidents. Prior to provincial council getting underway, they handed out yellow buttons that read "Carole winning together!" and "Doer Dexter James," as well as similarly coloured scarves - a feature of her 2003 leadership campaign. See for yourself in the footage above. But among those not wearing such regalia or applauding during Ms. James's speech were 13 MLAs - something first reported by The Vancouver Sun's Jonathan Fowlie. So with 84 percent of council delegates voting down a resolution proposing a leadership convention in 2011, the question now becomes what happens to those off-side legislators.
