Members of the NDP are gathering at a convention in Edmonton this weekend where they will decide the fate of Tom Mulcair as leader of the party.
There are more than 1,500 delegates who are attending with some calling for him to step down and some members continuing to support him as their leader.
This comes after Mulcair finished in third during the 2015 federal election last October.
The NDP are at odds with the federal branch of the party over something called the Leap Manifesto and Mulcair says he’s looking forward to a conversation about that topic in particular. The proposal is calling for a rejection of the pipeline development, which would see the country rid itself of fossil fuels.
Mulcair needs at least 70% of the vote to stay on as party leader, but anything less than 51% on the secret ballots would lead to a leadership race in 2016.
