Burquitlam: The Incumbent

Harry Bloy, BC Liberal backbench MLA, is in his first term representing the riding that was created in 2001 after the redistribution. Of all the Burnaby MLAs, Bloy has the best understanding of the perpetual campaign that is required now that B.C. has a fixed election date.

Bloy's government website focuses on his accomplishments in the community. For some reason, much of this work makes mention of Simon Fraser University.

Bloy's BC Liberal website provides the background to Bloy but not much else.

Bloy's YourMLA site designed by Rhino Marketing Inc. is the most developed of the websites. BC Liberal candidates in the other three Tri-Cities ridings and in New Westminster are also participating in this cutting edge voter outreach website.

Election Prediction seems to show a degree of grassroots support for Bloy, although the NDP defenders have emerged as of late. As long as his campaign does not start to put up signs saying "Burquitlam Loves Harry Bloy," he should continue to be the favourite in his rematch with NDP candidate Bart Healey.
