Burnaby's chances to pick the wheat from the chaff

Again based on the Now's reporting, there are four debates scheduled so far.

DPAC's school trustee debate at Schou on Monday has been cancelled, because of uncertainty about school being back in after the wildcat strike. As reported earlier, it will be rescheduled at a later date.

On November 1, the Burnaby Interagency Council has a marathon debate at Edmonds Community School. Starting at 5:00pm, school trustees will have at it. That will be followed at 6:30pm by council contenders. At 7:30pm, Derek Corrigan will take on challengers Tom Tao and TEAM Burnaby's Andrew Stewart.

November 8 (reported as November 9 in the paper) sees the Heights Neighbourhood Association host a debate at the odd time of 6:45pm at Gilmore Community School for partial slates of candidates as well as independent hopefuls.

On November 9, the granddaddy of all debates goes down at the Capitol Hill Community Hall as the Capitol Hill Community Association hosts a debate at 7:00pm. Given that it is at the top of the hill expect all verbal excrement from this debate to flow downhill.

The Capital Hall Community Centre
is where it's all at.

It's not a civic election in Burnaby if there is no debate at
the Capital Hall Community Hall.

Go and see why politics is our
second favourite blood sport after
Canadian style NHL hockey.

It's a rock 'em sock 'em crunch'em
into the boards, blood on the ice
style meeting.

Only candidates who are sissies
don't show up. Seperates the men
from the boys and the women from
the girls.

And it really brings out the moonbats to ask questions of those who are both brave enough and foolish enough to run.

Hey "Robert Burnaby", have you or any of your conservative ilk recieved TEAM Burnaby's laughable autodialer message yet? The only thing that could be worse is if BCA's Corrigan copies it.

I used to like the AC Meetings at the Capitol Hill CH. But I have to admit I am a bit tired of all the yahoos it attracts. Giving someone who does not have a hope in hell of getting elected the same amount of time as the real players is a joke and really turns it into a true circus.
As for the yahoos, probably comic relief for the boys from the Fellowship Centre down the road.
