Election Night Battleground

As the 2006 Canadian federal general election comes down to the wire, national networks will be paying close attention to the races in Burnaby. A key battleground in the Lower Mainland, Burnaby will be a key battleground nationally if a minority government is to be formed on election night.

At least two TV networks have been in touch with major party candidates in the Burnaby riding of Burnaby-New Westminster with regards to their whereabouts on the evening of January 23rd. At least one network has been in contact with a Burnaby-Douglas candidate.

I assume that's Bill C as GD does not have a chance.

Bill C needs another dose of reality, but expect Bill C to benifit from additional "resources" coming in from the Marissen Machine.

Bill C is the worst person to become MP.

Hey hold off. Bill C has lived in Burnaby and/or the riding longer than any of the other two major candidates.
Don't write the guy off.

The guy should be written off. Living in the riding isn't the sole reason for voting. Look at the party and look at the candidate.

He was the candidate last time because the Liberals would not have him face a real nomination meeting and force him to test.

This time, he was acclaimed. Big deal.

He's too close to Martin.

Both the federal Liberals and Billy Boy fail the quality assurance tests.


Vote either NDP or Conservative.

Cunningham is as honest as his party.

All three parties can be corrupt if they get into power. Libs had Chretien running his stalag and the Conservatives had Mulroney doing the deeds and I have no doubt if by some act of god the NDP got in, Layton would have his brand of corruption surface within a few years so voting Liberal is not as bad as you seem to say. Although most people on this thing seem to hate Cunningham more than the Liberals.

What's wrong with Cunningham being close to Martin. I would rather have an MP with the Prime Minister's ear than some stray NDP'er who is not in the loop and belongs to a party known to be made of of perennial whiners.
Numbers now look like the Libs are gaining so why not cut our losses and elect an MP who can get our riding on the radar screen.
I have never voted Liberal in this riding but will this time around because I feel it would be a good thing for the riding.

Lots wrong with an MP having the PM's ear. Why a direct path to the Prime Minister available by Billy Boy and not the others?

Billy Boy won't be able to achieve what people think he will. These so called "have the ear of the leader" types have been typically a real disasspointment.

Face it, Billy Boy is just a political hack looking for opportunity and not serving the riding.

Svend was a member of a party of whiners, but despite his irritating
personality and his politics, he became a model MP. Siskay is heading towards the same thing.

Billy Boy will just be a model MP to federal Liberal members and no one else.

If GD isn't to your liking, go with Siskay.

Besides, the Liberals have burned off almost a billion dollars of taxpayers money in the past 5 years in cost overruns, lost money and money to friends and insiders so why would they deserve another term?
