Leadership Edit

Ken McGowan beat out Ellen Durkee, and Aaron Eisses during the convention held in early May 2007. Ken received over 50% of the vote, compared to Durkee's 34% and Eisses' 15%.

During his stewardship the party rose to as high as 7 per cent in the polls.

Resignation Edit

McGowan resigned in January 2008, citing violations of the party's internal constitution, notably the presence of unelected rival Ellen Durkee on the party's executive, which the constitution requires have members elected by the membership in each region. McGowan called on the party to hold a convention and uphold its constitution [1]. However, as of March 2008, no convention had been held, and Durkee had been appointed interim leader.
