Dredging up that old issue

Burnaby Lake, thorn in the side of a generation of local politicians, is being made a campaign issue again. In the Burnaby NewsLeader article entitled "Burnaby Lake rejuvenation an election issue, again" the paper highlights TEAM Burnaby's position on the local issue that will not go away. TEAM opposes digging an eight-lane rowing course in the lake, which would give Burnaby one of Western North America's most scenic competitive rowing facilities. Current mayor Derek Corrigan is not ready to act until there is federal money to accompany the provincial cash.

Do not expect this issue to go away anytime before the 2008 municipal election.
