Red-faced over Green confusion

According to the Green Party of Canada website, the Green candidates for Burnaby are Scott Janzen in Burnaby-New Westminster and Ray Power in Burnaby-Douglas. Earlier it was reported here that Ian Gregson would be running for the Greens in Douglas.

Ray Power ran in Douglas in 1997 for the Progressive Conservatives. He finished forth trailing then MP Svend Robinson of the NDP, who is currently seeking the Vancouver Centre seat held by Liberal Hedy Fry, Reform candidate Gary Eyre, who just lost the local Burnaby council race as a TEAM Burnaby candidate, and Mobina Jaffer of the Liberals, who is currently in the Canadian Senate and is one of the leading voices for aid to Darfur.

Burnaby-New Westminster candidate Scott Janzen does not appear to have deep roots in electoral politics.

You are right Robert, I don't have deep roots in electoral politics. I haven't been able to find a party that agrees with my principles until I researched the Green Party during the 2004 election.

I'm hoping that this election, the Green Party will provide a choice that people can vote FOR, instead of being forced to vote against the party they particularily dislike.

Great blog Robert.

Cheers,
SJ

Good way to go when going into
the political store for the first time.

Startwhere you are now with the boys department and then when you're ready work your way up to the men's department.
