The new Maple Ridge (or even the new Surrey)?

Is Burnaby falling apart? In the last few days alone there have been incidents involving dognapping and a fake ransom note.

This event comes fast on the heels of third-time Liberal candidate Billy Cunningham's fundraiser with Gerard Kennedy. The event was held down south in Burnaby-New Westminster at Burnaby Village Museum and one skeptical Liberal commented that it was an appropriate venue given it has a carosel that just goes round-and-round in circles.

William III

Third time candidate Billy Cunningham is parlaying his $12,500 from the Dion leadership campaign into further fundraising success. Friday of next week, former Ontario MPP, Liberal cult hero, and fellow candidate for MP Gerard Kennedy is in Burnaby to help Cunningham bring in some cash for his battle against Bill Siksay.

Cunningham's event is at Burnaby Village Museum, but there is no word yet on when an election will be held so that Cunningham can attempt to make Siksay's time as MP history.
