Heavy Guns

In order to get some of the unfavourable elements out of Burnaby municipal politics some of the heavier hitters in provincial politics for the BC Liberals are being asked to get involved financially to make sure that dream becomes a reality.

This is the same thing that is happening in campaigns throughout the Lower Mainland - also in Delta, Coquitlam, and Vancouver - in order to have less conflict with municipal halls. If one recalls, prior to the NDP moving up from two seats in the Legislature, Derek Corrigan (along with the reporters for Global TV, The Vancouver Sun, The Province, and The Victoria Times-Colonist) tried to provide a stronger opposition than that of the Kwan-MacPhail NDP rump.

Unlike other municipalities where help is pouring in from the provincial mothership, things in Burnaby are moving slower because of the uncertainty of the unity in the right-of-Corrigan movement. If the BVNPA confirms it will not be contesting the election, Burnaby residents can expect the municipal vote on November 19 to be a proxy war between the BC Liberal-backed folks and the NDP-BCA.
