With only “615 NV residents” taking part in the District/NRG survey is an endorsement, definitive proof that MOST NV residents DON’T WANT an amalgamation study!


With only “615” CNV/DNV residents responding to the District’s NRG survey represents a realized critical mass of those simply not interested in any amalgamation study.  A meek, weak survey based on hollow numbers is if anything irrelevant and INSIGNIFICANT and best re-defined as “North Shore Bolshevik-ism.”  #abstractSurvey #noInterest

Yet unbelievably a majority of the District Council lead by Councillor Bassam-vik are standing behind this “615 NV residents charade”, (and might be NVCAA’s Guy Heywood maybe running for CNV mayor?) – believing this “slim pickings survey” does in fact represent a majority of “the people”.  An inane adverse reality believing  “the 615 surveyed equals an 87% majority of CNV/DNVC voters” as ordained in the NRG Research Group’s +/- 3.9% at a 95% level of bullshit er confidence!”  #Trump-likeSurvey  #unconstitutional

And what is so damn hypocritical and reported by the District Trojan Crier aka NSNews is District Councillor Bassam now running for District mayor is pleading that “it is time for politicians to get out of the way and turn it over to the citizens.”  So why in the hell then is “he & his District city council NOT the CNV/DNV people” putting on their District election’s ballot a “peoples manifesto” seeking further study on this issue!  #DistrictCouncilTyranny  #undemocratic

Mayor Mussatto and rightly so does not trust the survey’s methodology stating: “The District is going rogue… their own study said amalgamation would not save rather cost the District money… this is a politically motivated populist tactic to distract from their issues… our city is seen as more progressive, more diverse… we’re doing just fine, thanks very much.”

  1. what would be your idea of an acceptable sample size? I said back in 2011 that while I thought amalgamation would be a good thing for both North Vancouvers I had difficulties imagining a reasonable road to it.

  2. I would say Mary a reasonable acceptable survey number should have no less than 25% from residents in both cities with the District being twice as large. Further a re-unification plebiscite would require 60% approval from at least 51% of residents from each city.
