When last we left Svend Robinson, the former federal New Democrat parliamentarian was working at the British Columbia Government Employees' Union as a staff representative. That was back in August 2004. So we're sure our readers are anxious for an update on what Mr. Robinson has been up to since then. Well, transferring his provincial party membership from Burnaby-Willingdon to Burnaby North, for one thing. Burnaby North constituency members voted to approve that transfer this past Sunday during their annual general meeting - which was held at the Confederation Seniors Centre. Under the party's provincial constitution, British Columbial executive members must still rubber stamp that transfer. Meanwhile, our readers can contemplate why Mr. Robinson might be on the move.
