A new name for Burnaby

I have a suggestion.

“Burnaby” is such a mundane name—no flair, no pizzaz. “Burnaby” is just “Vancouver” spelled differently. 

Think how much better known we would be if our municipality had a truly distinctive name, one that would make people sit up and take notice, one that would encourage businesses to relocate here.

I suggest “Pothole City.”
