14 Year NDP Veteran Jenny Kwan takes on leader Carol James
Jenny Kwan who is the veteran member of the NDP is daring Carol James to fire her. Jenny wants James to step down to allow for a leadership convention. Jenny has had the courage to speak out against Carol James and there are another twelve NDP members that want James gone. It also looks like former NDP Bob Williams may be behind the scene trying to oust Carol James
Carol James is not a good leader. James has flip-flopped on a number of issues. The carbon tax,the MLA pay raise, the Olympics. When it came to fighting the HST she let former Social Credit Premier Bill Vanderzalm do all the work.
Kwan and Joy MacPhail where the only two surviving NDP members after the 2001 electoral meltdown and they kept the NDP alive in their darkest hours.
Kwan was one of just two MLAs to survive the party's 2001 electoral meltdown. She and Joy MacPhail kept the party alive during its darkest hours.
The NDP are now a very much spit party and are in big trouble. Carol James even admits that . The best thing Carole James could do is step aside now and call a leadership convention. If she stays on as leader and fires Kwan she is in big trouble. She still has another twelve NDP member that want her out. Will James get rid of them also? Not likely.
The NDP are supposed to be have a caucus meeting on the weekend to try and sort out this terrible mess. The way things are going it will probably go from bad to worse.
