Burquitlam: The Buzz
With this riding being in two cities, it is receiving a fair bit of attention from groups putting on all-candidates debates. BC Liberal Harry Bloy has a tendency to avoid debates in unfavourable settings. NDP challenger Bart Healey has caught on and appears to be taking a policy of only attending debates where he can meet Bloy head-to-head. Tonight's Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion Burnaby-wide debate is one good example of this approach. Neither candidate is expected to attend. However, there are more than a dozen debates for the Burquitlam riding, it is probably a good choice for both candidates who are skipping the city-wide one tonight.
