The Burnaby-New Westminster Conservatives sent out a press release promoting their candidate Marc Dalton and his weekend community listening tour.

The press release, entitled "Conservative M.P.s discuss safety issues with New Westminster and Burnaby business owners," mentioned that Dalton was accompanied by Tory MPs James Moore, Paul Forseth and Justice Critic Vic Toews. Dalton and the two local MPs were showing Toews around the Columbia Street area between Columbia and New Westminster Skytrain stations, an area noted for its problems with crime.

Now to the reason this item garnered the attention of Burnaby Politics: Dalton and the MPs (which does not quite have the same ring to it as Booker T and the MGs) also visited Burnaby. The Conservatives rode Skytrain to Metrotown station. One must assume that is where they spoke to Burnaby business owners.

In related news, a tip from someone close to the current MP has let it be known that the NDP pol is keeping tabs on his Tory challenger. Of the challengers to Julian and Bill Siksay, Dalton clearly leading the pack in terms of making appearances at community events. Bill Cunningham has been making appearances but George Drazenovic and Mary Pynenburg have been M.I.A. for most of the time since their nominations.
