The woman who helped instigate a botched defection of several New Democrats to the New Brunswick Green Party was once suspended from practising law in the province and was later disqualified from running for the provincial NDP leadership, CBC News has learned.

Joyce Richardson and her son Jonathan, a former member of the federal NDP executive, organized the Sept. 3 news conference that announced the defections.

"It was mostly me and Jonathan," she said.
