Not quite seeing eye-to-eye

Liberal candidate Mary Pynenburg and Conservative candidate Marc Dalton are not quite seeing eye-to-eye. Their offices are on different levels across the street from one another on Kingsway east of Metrotown between Nelson and Royal Oak. At least they will be able to keep an eye on each other's office lights to see when the other team is packing it in each night.

Elections Canada is just down the block from the two offices, while NDP MP Peter Julian is a few kilometers down the road towards New Westminster.

This time around.....I don't think the votes are there for either of the Conservative candidates in Burnaby. Even if the NDP and Liberals split their votes the Conservatives wont win.
Burnaby is a horse race between the NDP and Liberals. Conservative supporters should hold their nose and vote Liberal if they dont want the NDP in.
If the Liberal candidates get this message across to the voters they might win on election night.

What a bunch of crap that is. The last thing B.C. needs is more Liberal MP's.

The NDP is bad as they are, but the worst is the Liberals.

They don't deserve to win back government.

If the Liberal candidates get this message across to the voters they might win on election night

Why would any sane person want that?

Mary Pyneburg is not very good in presenting herself, she's boring and wouldn't make a suitable representative.

Niether would Billy Boy. Too close to Martin and too close to the Marissen Machine to be an effective MP.

Best thing is to vote Conservative and split the vote.

I kind of feel sorry for George. I think Siksay was going to win in 2004 regardless, but it seemed that all it took was a few attack ads at the closing days of June 2004 to put some parachuted party hack ahead of George, who at least should've finished a strong second even if he didn't win. And George worked hard too.

If I was George and I realize that 30+ days worth of hard work in campaigning don't compare to a few attack ads, I'd just quit politics. That said, having been re-nominated in Burnaby-Douglas, George should put up a fight again for his party no matter how useless it would be. Just to stick it up to the Liberals.

Dalton is putting up a fight too and that's a good thing. His religious past will hurt him, but you can't blame a man for working hard.

I think, all things considered, from a Conservative perspective, holding their nose and voting Liberal says that they'll cower under the fearmongering tactics of the Liberal bullies, and that, in my opinion, is worse than voting NDP.

Looks like the Conservative Party has written off Burnaby Douglas as well. I can't blame them. You have to put your resources where you have the best chance.
I agree. George seems to be a good guy but will probably come in third again as the Greens are too far behind to catch him.
Let's face it, if the Conservatives had a better chance in Burnaby Douglas you would have seen a better calibre of candidates vying for the nomination.

I disagree. Outside of Hedy and Ujjal (who really is NDP) BC Liberal MP's have done a pretty good job representing the province and have gotten more out of Ottawa than we have seen in decades.

Disagree.

Still miniscule compared to other provinces, and the arrogance of the federal Liberals and most of its MPs and a few party members is legendary.

Long way to go in terms of BC taxpayer money returned in the form
of federally funded projects and initiatives for British Columbians.

Thats right Conservatives, work hard. You don't want the Liberals to win Burnaby and end up with a Liberal majority now don't you? ;)

Adcscam, the Gun Registry, ministrial overruns, insane levels of appointments and patronage, why would any one want a federal Liberal benefactor of political appointment such as Billy Boy be deserving of being
elected as MP?

Think Billy Boy would be able to
do more for BC than than any other Liberal MP?

In your dreams.

What would be a dream for you and the federal Liberals, would be a nightmare for the rest of us.

NDP would have done just as bad and maybe more.

No one could do worse than the federal Liberals when it comes to insane levels of political appointments, sloppy spending practices and corruption.

The NDP will never become government but they are very good about serving the constituents.

The federal Liberals on the other hand are very good about serving themselves.
