Was The Derek Right?

Today's Burnaby Now features a cover story on Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan and the Olympic Oval. Did Corrigan make the right move fighting over the Olympic Oval and pushing it out to Richmond, where it has become the Olympic Games' white elephant even before it is built?

Maybe the popular Corrigan's somewhat unpopular decision to leave Burnaby on the sidelines in 2010 will prove to be his greatest legacy if the XXIst Olympiad winds up being as big of a flop as people are beginning to expect given the overruns, shameful presentations, and sinking Oval.

Corrigan is mad because Richmond took the Oval away from him.

Corrigan was never a supporter of the 2010 Games(TM).

Would have been a difficult transportation problem to get all of the people up The Hill.

The Oval will turn out to be just fine.

Hey, Richmond city can pay for their wobbly oval...I like my taxes low, thanks. Who wouldda thunk it, fiscal foresight from an NDPer...about as rare as integrity from a Liberal.

And the fiberals are about to experience the same thing once the Basi Virk influence peddling trial goes on. You can see the back room Fiberals running for cover on this one.

Or when they see a picture of Basi and Virk, cover their mouths when they start to vomit.
