A Dam-ing Reckoning Awaits the NDP in the Peace River District.


The new NDP Horgan government have reneged on their promise to the Moberly First Nation choosing to turn their backs on the First Nation People of Peace River.  Contending flooding 10,000 hectares of sacred lands and rural farmlands is worth the 4 billion dollars it will save on its debt as it offers nothing in return for the people of this province (as the voices of the First Nation People and rural farmers have nothing to offer our province). 

As the premier so callously stated:  it’s not the first time the Indigenous People will have been let down by government… there has been over 150 years (aka screwing) disappointing Indigenous People.  i.e. Why should I be the first BC Premier to respect and uphold First Nation Lands.

A Christmas Carol’s Final Jingle…


It has been a year of en masse density and traffic travesty
Thanks in part to Mayor Mussatto and his Team Slate Councillors:
Buchanan, Keating, Back… a city having forsaken its glory
Having SOLD its soul to vulturine invested developers.

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.

Time correction on start time for tonight’s Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands Open House. It actually will start at 5:30 pm right in the thick of Eve’s rush hour!


My sources are not always right on target but I still trust them over anything written in the NSNews.  My apologizes as now the question is: who in the hell besides “double donor dipping” Darwin Properties is going to be there since MOST city residents will STILL be commuting, congested in homeward bound traffic.

North Shore’s “resistance” to slow down condo developments led by Mayor Mussatto means our traffic woes are here to stay probably for decades!


CBC Vancouver Municipal Affairs reporter Justin McElroy writes: “Is there hope for a North Shore transportation solution anytime soon?”  While of course not, and not for decades thanks to the likes of our mayor and his controlling Team Slate City Council Hijackers Buchanan, Keating, Back.

I was taken aback by bullshitter Mussatto’s falsehood quip: “We’re trying to do work to find out what’s really going on with the traffic, what’s causing that, and we want to address solutions in a proper way.”  Again BULLSHIT, he knows EXACTLY what has caused our traffic woes – his maniacal density push by autocratically strong-arming density levels beyond 2014 Regional Growth Strategy Levels and constructing FAILING $20+ million bike lanes!  The essentials on which his legacy will forever and justifiably be judged.

And tonight there is a Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands Open House starting conveniently at 5:30 (no time for dinner having just been caught up in commuter gridlocked traffic).  It is to be held at the North Vancouver School District Mountain View room on 2121 Lonsdale Ave. North Van…

From my POV it would be best if residents simply stayed away and enjoyed a family dinner at home or night out because it is “already a done deal” and the drawings DO NOT OFFER SOCIAL HOUSING.  And the developer will be deflecting all “unforeseen, not our problem,” increased traffic congestion and guaranteed overcrowded busing.  Any resident input much like Hollyburn’s Marlborough 3 apartment complex now under construction and about to bottleneck traffic along Lonsdale and 13 St. will be graciously received with disingenuous deaf ears!  Remember Darwin Properties INVESTED not once but TWICE into the willing hostage takeover of our mayor’s 2014 campaign.  #CNVSOL

Vote Manipulation and Mussatto Legacy Laundering Setting New Low Blow Highs!


Our CNV mayor has no shame nor does his Team Slate hijacking lackeys.  These Despicables are down to their LAST 320 weekdays and 90 weekends holding office.  And until then they will be mercilessly downgrading and screwing our city into en masse density annihilation!   #CNVdensityAnnilation

International Day of People with Disabilities TRUMPED by Mussatto’s Egomaniacal Ferris Wheel!


The United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities is today December 3rd.  And will our inglorious mayor and surrogate to wannabe night-mayor Linda Buchanan who is also our city councillor “rep” on our North Shore Disabled Persons Board celebrate this day?  Why of course on a ferris wheel and NOT in a wheel chair.

The theme for this year’s 2017 International Day of People with Disability is: “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all”.  The overarching principle of this theme is to ‘leave no one behind’ and empowers people with disability to be active contributors of society.

In honour of this prodigious day I self-proclaim this week as “CNV International Disability Week.”  I urge everyone to acknowledge and respect how these men, women and children cope and courageously look beyond their physical disabilities we take for granted.  #HireHandicap
