As you may or may not have heard (probably the latter), infamous federal Liberal non-candidate Tony Kuo announced on Friday he wants to run for the provincial New Democrats in Burnaby-Willingdon. Now normally an outsider wouldn't have much chance of winning a nomination in a party that's run like a closed union shop. But Mr. Kuo, who calls himself Mr. Democracy, must be feeling pretty darn good about his chances. Because, in a news release sent out last week, he informed the media multitude "I will have more to say on February 20, 2005 at the nomination meeting and upon my return of my family holiday from January 28, 2005 to February 14, 2005." In related news, Martinite high priest Mark Marissen was spotted doing cartwheels in the street upon finding out Mr. Kuo would officially be another party's problem. The following is a complete copy of the release.
Tony KUO, MBA

For Immediate Release
January 28, 2005
Burnaby-Tony Kuo wishes to announce that he has filed his papers to seek the BC New Democratic Party Nomination in the riding of Burnaby-Willingdon on February 20, 2005.
The issues are:
* Lack of Health care and Education
* Effective voice for the people of Burnaby-Willingdon

* Lack of investment in Burnaby-Willingdon for the last four years
I will have more to say on February 20, 2005 at the nomination meeting and upon my return of my family holiday from January 28, 2005 to February 14, 2005.
