NCLGA Calls Emergency Meeting

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 @ 11:38 AM

Prince George, B.C. -The North Central Local Government Association has called an emergency  meeting for 1 p.m. today.

The Association has been under fire in the wake of  sending a letter to the Lieutenant Governor  which  posed  questions about the constitutional  validity of  the agreement between the NDP and the Greens in B.C.   The letter  asked if such an agreement  “fettered”  MLAs  from decision making because they  are to be expected to  support the NDP  in matters that would keep the NDP in power.

In an email sent to the membership today, the  meeting is outlined as  an opportunity to “discuss emerging issues ( the letter to the Lt. Governor), hear member concerns  and outline immediate next steps .  The meeting will also address  what has been labelled as the “potential perception of partisanship”.

The letter ( see previous story here)  clearly stated that if  the NCLGA’s concerns were  not valid, then the letter should be ignored.  It also stated the  Association  did not expect the  Lt. Governor  to take any action.
