Rumours of TEAM's death are greatly exaggerated... for now

The Electors' Action Movement (TEAM) Burnaby Voters Association (TBVA) is holding its annual general meeting on April 20 at a Metrotown Hotel. Several defeated candidates, including independent Andrew Chisholm, are seeking board positions.

After November's defeat, despite no vote split, TEAM's supporters have been talking about getting off before the ship sinks. Some were even talking about returning to the rump Burnaby Voters Non-Partisan Association (BVNPA), which did not contest the 2005 election.

Word is that BVNPA will likely contest the 2008 elections unless the folks at TBVA and BVNPA get on board with another merger attempt. At the moment, at least one TEAM council member could be a viable candidate with TBVA, the BVNPA, or as an independent.

Figues. Same of group. Figures that someone would want to bag Chisholm now.

They should have snagged him for the Team Burnaby Nomination instead of Hilford.

Wonder if Brian and Mark will be orchestrating the proceedings into a carefully scripted event as they did with the Nomination Meeting?

How about a "democratic" meeting where the choice of candidates is limited to the "slate" presented by the "Powers that be"?
No nominations will be accepted from the floor in direct violation of Roberts Rules Of Order and therefore the consitution of this group.

Wonder if the members would be stupid enough to fall for that nonsense.
