Earlier this week, we noted the British Columbia New Democratic Party is increasingly reliant on donations from the labour movement. Indeed, the continued connection between the party and the labour movement is being strongly featured in the commemorative program that has been produced for today's New Democrat leadership assembly. Seven of the eight advertisers in that program are trade unions. And the co-host of the assembly is former British Columbia Teacher's Federation president Irene Lanzinger, who is now the secretary treasurer of the British Columbia Federation of Labour.
