Dion in Burnaby? Probably Not

Stephane Dion is on a 17-day cross-Canada tour to promote himself and the Liberal Party. However, his B.C. schedule appears to only have stops in Vancouver and Surrey, despite being here from Sunday till Tuesday.

Three days and two cities is not a full schedule for the leader of a national political party. What do prospective Burnaby candidates Gerry Lenoski and Billy Cunningham have to say about this?

Burnaby is a popular route between Surrey and Vancouver. Can't Lenoski and Cunningham get him to make a pit stop? How else are the Liberals going to shake things up in the NDP hotbed of Burnaby?

ummm...what's the point of this story? Dion's doing a 17 day tour and he's supposed to make it to every city in Canada?

Didn't he just do a lunch here right after he got elected leader?

Didn't some people lose their lunch after he got elected leader?

maybe he should've replaced his Vancouver stop with a Burnaby stop. the Liberals could've retained 4 out of 5 Vancouver seats even if each candidate in those ridings is a burning cross (ba-dum-ching!) - and even if the Liberal party leader is himself a burning cross. and that remaining Vancouver riding is a lot like the other 4 Vancouver ridings - just replace all instances of "Liberal" in the aforementioned description with "NDP".

I"m sorry "3/10/2007 1:31 AM ",but liberals will have no chance in Burnaby and Dion would have wasted his time coming to Burnaby as the liberals have no chance against the organized NDP tree-hugger gang.

Peter Julian is the most difficult NDP MP to unseat in BC after Libby Davies, and Bill Siksay continues to reign over the "star candidate" of Burnaby N, (Burnaby S candidate is pretty much a joke).

I would think that his time at Surrey is pretty much wasted as well as the Indo-Canadian community in Newton has decided to shift their allegiance to the party that is widely believed to form the next majority government.

Quit the racist drivel.
Dion's English is as easy to understand as George Drazenovic's.

But I do agree that the Liberals are in tough this time around. The electorate sees the Tories and Grits as almost identical on the climate change front. And in times of tumutuous change (i.e. impending climatic doom), people will be naturally inclined to become more 'conservative' - in the small 'c' sense.

And the Green Party will again be the main fulcrum in the next election, shifting those small numbers of voters that will help decide the outcome. (A fact that was well played last year when the Tory-controlled Green Party ousted Ian Gregson and installed former PCer Ray Power as their Burnaby-D candidate.)

No it isn't. GD's English is alot better than Dion's.

No kidding.

I doubt that. Most Greenies will
vote for the winning side.

"(A fact that was well played last year when the Tory-controlled Green Party ousted Ian Gregson and installed former PCer Ray Power as their Burnaby-D candidate.)"

Interesting part there. So essentially a Tory controlled Green Party put in someone who technically crossed the floor from the Tories to the Greens.

Ray Power is a nice guy, but he's
been all over the map. He's almost as bad as Ron Churchill in trying to find a political home that will
take him. Ron's been all over the map. Reform, Conservative, Liberal,
partially Green, Team Burnaby, BVNPA, Team Burnaby. The only thing he hasn't been is NDP.

But given a choice, Ray over Ron any day.

In other words go with class over crass.

Saw Dion face off against Raife Mair on the Standard.

Dion was horrible.

If that was a hockey game, Dion would be on the benches nursing the
effects of a good crunching into the boards.

moderator - are you going to remove this post "With Dion it's who wants him in your riding. For starters he cant speak English. If you can believe it Chretien spoke better English" or allow your site to be plastered by some anti-Quebecois loser?
