It’s beyond me why these BCA candidates keep getting voted in year after year, but nevertheless they were chosen by the Burnaby electorate, assuming for many reasons either their party of choice, familiarity of names, experience, etc.

The article also states “young people were shut out.” Well, the young person was a Green Party member. Burnaby residents obviously did not want a Green party councillor.

To make it more than that is belittling the choice of the citizens of Burnaby.
