Building more unaffordable housing will only lead to more traffic gridlock… unless you are NDP MLA Ma or mayors’ Mussatto and Walton whom Trump Fake News.


I must say I was almost impressed by the NSNews poignancy when it came to our dire traffic woes featured in last Wednesday’s front page using recent Canada Statistics and follow-up over on their “viewpoint” editorial page validating just how bad our daily traffic commute has become.  The paper gave DNV mayor Walton the last word conceding the need to build strategic town centres and affordable housing… But what he didn’t say and the “NSSnooze” did not ask him was: is he willing to put a temporary hold on new condo highrise developments.  And why does he think the BC NDP are seriously studying “mobility pricing” since they ran and got elected promising the elimination of bridge tolls.  The kiss of death… just ask the BC Liberal Party and what will surely befall any mayor supporting mobility pricing during the 2018 civic elections.

I also can’t help but be a little suspicious why the NSN did not let our CNV mayor weigh in on this congested conundrum.  You know the mayor who just spent over $20 million taxpayer’s money so 2.5% cyclists can bike to work.  A mayor who continues to prioritize condo highrise developments and NOT mini malls having parkades or crusading for affordable government assisted housing.  An autocratic inglorious mayor who sold our city to his campaign vultures whose profit margins would be negatively impacted by constructing any of the aforementioned.  And then again WHERE would in our little enclosed city would one find an empty lot or any demo potential property that hasn’t already been forfeited to an IOU developer from “behind closed doors”… ho, ho, ho.
