Reply to questions for candidates from Mary Pynenburg

A letter arrived in the mail this morning :

Dear Chris Brand,

I appreciate your questions and commend you for bringing forth issues that are important during this federal election.

The Liberal Party has commented on the Copyright Act, and this position can be found at

As New Westminster City Planner for twelve years, I have dealt with many complex issues with a wide range of stakeholders to work out the best policy position. Issues surrounding the Internet and the Copyright Act are complex and continually changing, and I agree that there needs to be a balanced approach that takes into account the creators and the rights of the public.

If elected, I look forward in being engaged with constituents of Burnaby-New Westminster, and working with you on issues that are important to you.

Yours truly,

Letter references website?

What I find very interesting about this letter is that it seems to reference our website as a media source for positions from the parties. I wonder if the URL is circulating around the candidates. It does suggest that at least some of the candidates are aware of us this election.
