More TEAMwork

Tom Tao, Surjit Parmar, and Cathy Cena have been sending out materials to TEAM Burnaby Voters Association members.

Council nominee wannabe (CNW) Tao's is a copy of his website materials, typos and all. It includes lines such as, "Next, the public need to know 'what TEAM is' and why should they vote for TEAM Burnaby,'" and commenting on the city's cash reserve, Tao asks, "Why is it for looking purpose only and never consider to use to serve people?' On the positive, he's not running for school board where one of the requirements might be a basic understanding of grammar. Maybe someone can tell him about the wonders of gerunds and subject-verb agreement among other things.

Fellow CNW Parmar is looking for votes, hoping that the part of the BC Liberal Party that dislikes him for his involvement in the Sahota AGM incident is still with the BVNPA or whatever they call themselves nowadays. Parmar's material is considered the best so far out of a TEAM council candidate.

School trustee wannabe (STW) Cena has the best brochure yet, for any TEAM spot. Cena uses the red and green TEAM Burnaby colours and highlights her resume (mother of two, leader, enthusiastic, VP of promotional ad company, past chair NEBCA - whatever that is, president Norman Bethune co-op, board member BC Boys Touring Choir, member at large Bby. Mtn. Sec. School PAC). Inside her brochure is a list of important notes for September 14 (voting day). Number one is vote for Cathy Cena, School Board Trustee. Numbers two through 18 are blank. Cena, like fellow STW Trudy Gordon, points out that mayoral candidate Andrew Stewart will be in attendance. Which forces the question are the school trustee candidates better "TEAM" players than the council candidates who have left that item out of their brochures? Then again the school board candidates are looking like they will be acclaimed while Stewart will need all the positive attention he can get as he seeks to run Derek "Where did the Olympic Oval go?" Corrigan out of City Hall.

A friend of George Vancouver and Col. Moody apparently.

Been receiving the Team Burnaby candidate material. Seen better stuff written by Young New Democrats. No imagination in some of them. Some contain factual errors.
