Call Me Ishmael-NDP

After the provincial election, I blogged about how the NDP lost their official party status now that they only have seven seats left. As it turns out, there is some flap over this. It seems that they want the law changed yet again so they can be official again. However, the new government won't do it this time. Apparently, this poses a problem for the seven remaining members. Now that they are unofficial, they cannot refer to themselves as NDP in parliment, they have to call themselves "Independant". So, in protest, one NDPer, Marilyn Churley, has gone ahead and legally changed her name to Marilyn Churley-NDP. That'll teach them.
