Are you ready to rumble err densify our city MORE! Full Steam Ahead: CNV’s 47% Demovict Solution


And away we go… tonight city council will be reveling: offering up MORE DENSITY continuing their NIMBY DISCONNECT.  Offering MORE condo high rises, MORE highfalutin market value rental housing.  All is great, empowered “4 to 3” in MASSatto Land, except uh…

The latest censure numbers have our lofty city pegged BELOW the National and Provincial Household Median income levels!  And one way our mayor and city council can bring us up – meet National and Provincial income levels is by continuing to demovict fixed/low income, seniors and young families from our city.   Approving and building housing only the mayor’s opulent and his 3 despicables can afford!  And isn’t it ironic our mayor gave our CAO Tollstom this year a $86K bonus “Moving on up to the North Shore Aristocracy.”   #Demovict  #CNV47%solution


But hold on to your hat
, the real main event tonight will be Councillor Bell’s two submitted Notices of Motions:

…What do you think the odds are that Councillor wannabe night-mayor Buchanan OBJECTS along with councillors Back and Keating: aka BC NDP President.  Will Keating vote NAY against motions oh so similar to his “own Party’s” upcoming “Political donation BAN LIMITING corporate and union contributions to $1,200″.  Including “Money Bags” Keating’s fav: “civic campaign in-kind contributions?”… stay tuned  #CNVtyranny
