UBCM Convention highlighted just how difficult it is for mayors and city councillors to willingly surrender TAINTED MONIES.


Well once again the Union of BC Municipalities during last week’s convention were not ready nor willing to concert a majority of its members eradicating corporate and union campaign money when it comes to their 2018 re-elections err city elections.  And this bullshit argument that “this would certainly be an advantage to incumbents that people seeking a seat on council simply don’t enjoy”  Really, in small towns and villages town hall meetings should suffice.  But in every lower mainland city there is an uprising, a frustration surrounding all the unaffordable housing being constructed “at will” by bought and paid for mayors and their bankrolled infected city councillors.  I think voters wont be fooled again by any mayoral or city councillor who is being financed – indebted to a developer, union or corporate “investor.”   #wontBeFooledAgain

Further, any mayor or city councillor who has willingly supported this density-mania Asian invasion like: wannabe night-mayor councillor Buchanan.  Will undoubtedly find themselves at the wrong end of the stick, targets, a bulls-eye for all “inner city” ignored, deprioritized infrastructures, parking deficiencies, traffic and transit congestion and gridlock! “Inner city density issues they created – not the province or TransLink.” … All the money in the world is not going to be enough to save their asses.  #AssButtKicking

And I see on tonight’s agenda fight card Councillor Clark is proposing: ‘Below Market Rental Units in Multi-Family Developments’.   Wanting the City to provide a minimum of 20% of units at a 10% below market rate in perpetuity.  Only problem with this is in 2/3 years when these multi-housing projects are completed market rental rates will be in the neighbourhood of $2,500 to $3,000+.  So how in the hell will our city’s 47% be able to afford $2,000 to $2,700 a month rent is beyond my cognizance.  #NorthShoreHomelessFiguresUp
