Wednesday, September 25, 2013 NewsLeader A-LIST A3

Welcome to the A-List Welcome to the NewsLeader’s A-List. This summer, we put the call out to readers, in the form of a survey, asking residents to name some of their favourite things in the city. The list includes restaurants— with everything from best place for beers on tap, best wine list and best place for fish and chips—to where to get a great facial, topnotch mechanic, a deal on a used car, or stylish clothes. It may not be a precise, scientific survey, but it’s a great way to get a good sense of some of the great businesses that are worth visiting in Burnaby, and some of the great attractions this city has to offer, such as Burnaby Lake and Fraser Foreshore Park. If anything, the A-List will help you appreciate the amazing offerings in this city. Congratulations to all who made this year’s A-List. —Chris Bryan, Editor
