“People of the world, unite and defeat the U.S. aggressors and all their running dogs! People of the world, be courageous, dare to fight, defy difficulties and advance wave upon wave.”
– Chairman Mao
I feel this is the battle cry of Burnaby politics, those of the NDP candidates and their minions running city hall. In Chairman Mao’s quote replace U.S. aggressors with Liberals, the centrist party. Out of 22 elected officials in Burnaby 19 are left wing NDP/Union backed hacks. Good for them you may say, they win elections. Sure but while other candidates raise money for their election campaigns these people have well-oiled special interest unions throwing money at them.
In my previous Blog, ‘Burnaby’s Incestuous Politics” I noted the nepotism of husband being the Mayor and wife running for MLA for the NDP. How about Mondee Redmon, vast experience as a ‘school trustee’ -wow- and one of the in-house folks suffering from big fish-in-a -small pond syndrome.
Living in Burnaby with these politicians makes me feel so alienated at times, cause the rest of the world doesn’t see things the way folks do in Burnaby, maybe I’m a Vancouverite at heart- but wait, isn’t the Mayor of Vancouver a former NDP MLA?
