Layton again

Federal NDP leader Jack Layton will likely make a pit stop in Burnaby during the last weekend of November. On Saturday, November 26, Layton will be in Vancouver for the BC wing of the party's fundraising dinner. Given that the NDP only has 19 MPs, Layton does a very good job of trying to visit each of their ridings whenever possible. Given that the orange clusters on the may from Vancouver East through to Burnaby-New Westminster, odds are that Layton will pay a visit to Bill Siskay and Peter Julian to shore up their chances of re-election next year.

I don't know why he wastes his time in Burnaby. Siksay is as good as re-elected in Douglas.

Burnaby is the People's Socialist
Republic. Julian will be re-elected too.

Julian is not nearly as safe as Siksay. Siksay has a rematch with two weak opponents, while Julian beat both the Liberals and Conservatives by only a small percentage.

Wouldn't say Siksay is that safe. He has not done much for the riding and this time has to run on his record rather than saying he learned a lot from Svend. As well might be a realization that the Conservatives cannot win this riding with people holding their nose and voting for Cunningham if he is running.
He did not do that badly last time around when you consider the campaign he ran. Or ran from.

Wonder if Cunningham will actally have to face a real Nomination Meeting. If this guy thinks he's so good, then he should face (or faze) the membership.

Did catch him playing guitar at the annual gatherings of journalists and politicians. Wicked eh?
