May’s Sunday Editorial Funny…


I’ve been asked a number of times… do your love bird seagulls have names – not yet.  If anyone has any suggestions would certainly entertain them and would give due credit in an upcoming seagull themed blog.

Re: City Electoral Signs; it has been brought to my attention that last Monday night’s city election bylaws and update re:  “Sign Bylaw, 1992, No. 6363” (not the 8643 Elections Assent Voting bylaw).  i.e. Limits (prohibits) pre-election campaign materials has already been contested and defeated in BC court and was found to be in breach of S.2(b) of the Charter of Freedoms and Rights!   It appears campaign advertising on bike signs or even at bus stop shelters prior the six week election period does not break any laws… however it appears the City has, namely our constitution! (more on Monday)   #ConstitutionalSignBylawViolations

Let the free-for-all sign wars begin!


Beatle tribute…

101 years ago “the Russian Empire” experienced the Bolshevik Revolution giving rise to the “Soviet Union.” Today are we on a much, much lesser scale here on the North Shore about to witness a DNVC Councillor “Bassam-vik Peoples Union” takeover of our “NVC Council Democracy.”


In today’s blog I’m going out on the limb hoping most will see the historic humour and apropos sarcasm in my copy and re-worked NVCV banner.

The North Van City Voices Blog should maybe change (in the short term) their name to the DISTRICT VOICES!  (much like the NSNews should change its name to NS District Rag)  Re: WELCOMING the news the District of North Vancouver is making a new as in – nothing has changed – at amalgamating with the City of North Vancouver.  This from a blog that says it is non-political – doesn’t take sides – really.  A seemingly “pro District blog” supporting power to the (Bolshevik) District City Council over our city council democracy – promoting “anarchy” or is it a District revolution er amalgamation coup!  And with a wanton District amalgamation/revolution on the horizon will we be looking at a plebiscite aka Red October 20th Ballot Box.  #DNVBolshevikRevolution

In the 2014 city elections the only pro amalgamation mayoral candidate was George Pringle and he received less than a thousand votes with mayor Mussatto squeaking out victory over Kerry Morris who was neither for or against.  As one fellow coffee mate gal put it to me recently “is Kerry running as a double agent”.  But in all fairness he further iterated the matter needs a detailed examination which we should do.  But your current “elected city council” insists nothing has changed, so what further detailed examination is necessary when “nothing has changed?”

Also on election night besides Morris and possibly Pringle running for mayor there will be at least two more candidates… “Someone” from the NSCAA as in maybe Guy Heywood who in his archived blog was all for amalgamation thus leaving WTH wannabe mayor Linda Buchanan the only one seemingly opposed to the reunification of the two cities.

Hey little sister city – it’s a nice day to start again… Potential District Coup White Wedding Unplugged Theme Song?
