Earlier today, we reported MLAs Katrine Conroy, Jenny Kwan and Norm Macdonald had privately approached Carole James on November 17, suggesting it was time for her to go. A caucus spokesperson has confirmed that meeting did indeed take place. The spokesperson also confirmed Ms. James was presented with a letter - signed by 13 MLAs - making the case for her to step aside. But the spokesperson could not comment on former provincial New Democrat cabinet minister Corky Evans's allegation that Ms. James broke the confidence of the meeting by advising "others in her Caucus and staff what had happened," naming the MLAs who had approached her.
