Campaign in a Nutshell: Burnaby-Douglas

Incumbent NDP MP Bill Siksay takes on two opponents from 2004, produces frightening campaign brochures with his face on them, and gets a fair deal of support from Jack Layton early in the campaign.

Liberal challenger and backroom pol Billy Cunningham trots a sizable portion of cabinet through his riding, including two visits from Paul Martin. Cunningham spends much of the campaign blogging about campaign and how he plans to bring about change to Burnaby.

Conservative George Drazenvoic struggles to begin the campaign. He has a late office opening and eventually his signs appear. He campaigns as a "Green" Tory and uses the campaign to promote his alternative energy company's plans for Canada's energy future.

Green Ray Power throws out some socially conscious, earth friendly ideas and admits he's probably not heading to Ottawa.

Communist George Gidora attended debates and appeared on CPAC, where he talked about Communism being in his bloodlines.

Good Point on the ghoulish Siksay pictures. Would be more fitting if we had a fall election in late October.

I like the Paint Shop job on the George C pictures in front of a wind farm.

George isn't a Green Tory. He's
aquamarine.
