In just 37 weeks Mayor Mussatto will be leaving office on a very FULL stomach.


Finally there is a non partisan North Shore newspaper that is listening to the concerns of residents – kudos to The Global Canadian.  And no I am not on their payroll, am just relieved to see an alternative tabloid publication encouraging and “not limiting public input.”

Even my once next door neighbour for many years Fiona Walsh now has an open resource to voice her concerns, pointing out how the CNV population is seemingly out of control, with neighbourhoods suffering from traffic congestion, overcrowded schools, and unaffordable housing.  (The Global Canadian: page 6 “Change We Want)

And if our overall North Shore population is shrinking as wannabe mayor councillor Buchanan wants us to believe.  It would and could be for reasons like:  The many Mussatto Team Slate heralded demo-rental-evictions, unaffordable housing for far too many seniors, single parents, fixed and low income earners.  And young couples like my tenant neighbours wanting MORE than just a cookie cutter existence having just bought an affordable home in Abbotsford.  Lost forever to our city will be their much needed talents in nursing and construction.  

From my POV:  those that can afford our gentrified uppity housing prices are NOT BLUE COLLAR WORKERS.  The very backbone to our city’s wellness and survival.  #CNVSOL
