Burnaby Citizens Association picks candidates for November civic election
The Burnaby Citizens Association (BCA) selected its slate for the fall civic election on Saturday, with only a couple new faces joining the incumbents.
Vying for election as school trustees are Burnaby residents Harman Pandher, a graduate of Cariboo Hill secondary who currently works as an elementary school teacher for the Surrey school district, and Meiling Chia, who works at the Surrey Taxation Centre and has a daughter in the Burnaby school system. They will take the places on the slate vacated by current trustees Diana Mumford and Tony Coccia who are not running for re-election. The NDP-affiliated BCA holds all seats on city council and school board. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan was approved as the mayoral candidate, as was all the existing councillors, Councillors Pietro Calendino, Richard Chang, Sav Dhaliwal, Dan Johnston, Colleen Jordan, Anne Kang, Paul McDonell and Nick Volkow.
Incumbent school trustees returning to the BCA ticket are Larry Hayes, Ron Burton, Baljinder Narang, Gary Wong and James Wang.
