Electronic Voting and Provincial Convention

This week ONDP sent out an email vote to decide if provincial convention should be delayed by a year to some unknown date. Perhaps there is an obvious answer I cannot not see, but I just don't understand why the motion wasn't presented to us two weeks ago at Provincial Council? Certianly the powers that be were considering the motion since they presented it to caucus just days after council. Beyond the odd timing, the email vote appears just a little disorganized. Some delegates and alternates received their email voting package a day or two late, while others still have not received theirs at all. Democracy and grassroots participation, the pillars of the ONDP constitution, appear to be the last considerations in all of this. But hey, why stop nodding our heads 'yes' now.
