Dredging up old issues
Peter Julian is going on about Burnaby Lake again (with a letter and an article in the latest Burnaby Now). The guy runs on a provincial issue (the St. Mary's closure by the Liberals). Gets elected. Makes an issue in another riding (Burnaby-Douglas not Burnaby-New Westminster) his pet cause after getting elected. And that issue is the favourite issue of municipal council candidates (dredging the sludge out of Burnaby Lake so those who enjoy water sports - get your minds out of the gutter - can paddle their canoes without getting stuck when nowhere near the shoreline).
