There was a whole lot of smoke blowing in the wind at last Monday’s City Council Meeting.


I first and foremost want to wish Councillor Bell a speedy recovery and hope he will be able to attend next week’s city council meeting before their scheduled 3 week Spring Break Snooze.  But also missing in action without any explanation to taxpayers was once again of course “NDP Moneybags Councillor Keating.”

At times I sensed there might be a little cannabis floating in the air as the mayor was determined to keep under wraps agenda item 2: Smoking Prohibition Expansion and “Enforcement”.  While agenda item 6: Proposed Cannabis Dispensary “Enforcement” was openly discussed during the city council ‘public’ meeting.  Beckoning the question why the hypocritical double standard?  Could it be because of the television interview planned by the mayor on this matter.

The shocker of the night for moi was hearing OMG, Councillor Back unwilling to support the Development Application at 125 and 145 East 13th Street: a 23 storey high tower – until extra OCP Bonus floors kick in!  Her feedback from the community and local businesses being: they are “fed-up” with all the new development going on in their neighbourhood.  Wanting to see new development in their area slow down for the next couple of years.  Opposing was councillor and wannabe mayor Buchanan who was adamantly in favour – wanting MORE development i.e. construction turmoil for this community.

But the highlight of the night was when councillor Bookham asked CNV Engineer/Parks/Envro Douglas Pope why he was so keen on WASTING taxpayer’s money on a temporary Green Black Necklace while knowing dam well it would have to be RE-CONFIGURED i.e. conforming to the proposed redevelopment by “double dipping” Mussatto campaign donor Darwin Properties.  #cnvSOL
