The Burnaby-New Westminster Report

Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian's latest mailing has arrived. Canada Post must love this guy. Julian plays up Remembrance Day and war hero Smokey Smith's passing on the front and then fills the rest of the newsletter with NDP promo materials. MP Bill Siksay, Jack Latyon times five, MLA Raj Chouhan, aspiring BCA councilor Paul McDonnell, and the federal NDP caucus all appear in photos. Julian also lays out plans for gas prices, the NDP budget, and financial advice.

In the opposite corner, Mary Pynenburg, who when not attending NPA fundraisers in Vancouver, is bringing Minister of State (Public Health) Dr. Carolyn Bennett into the riding for a pre-election fundraiser at the Westminster Club. Recently a Pynenburg supporter said of Julian, "he comes into the riding picks up some garbage and then heads back to Ottawa," when describing his community clean-up initiatives.

Conservative candidate Marc Dalton has been keeping out of the spotlight since his recent appearance in both The Burnaby Now and The Royal City Record, although he was sighted at the Rotary Wine and Cheese event last Friday.

Anyone notice that Julian uses
NDP orange on his propangda? Those mailouts are supposed to be apolitical.

Pictures are poor too.

You look at a hero like Smokey Smith and others, and then look at

Then ask: Is this why the boys went over there?
