Dissenting Vancouver MLA Jenny Kwan says she plans to participate in an upcoming emergency caucus session for B.C. New Democrats.
But the veteran provincial legislator would not say if she fears being disciplined for publicly releasing a blistering critique of Opposition party leader Carole James.
“I intend to participate in the meeting,” Kwan told the Straight today (December 3) by phone. “But as I say, I would like to see that it’s a meeting that is respectful.”
“I don’t know what’s going to happen at the meeting, so I’m not going to prejudge that meeting in terms of the outcome of that,” she added. “We just have to wait and see.”
At a news conference held yesterday to address the caucus infighting, James told reporters all NDP MLAs will be held accountable for their behaviour. The caucus meeting is reportedly set for Sunday afternoon in Vancouver.
Kwan, MLA for Vancouver-Mount Pleasant, is standing by a call for the NDP to quickly hold a party leadership convention based on one-member, one-vote.
