March 12th CNV council meeting keeps on giving and giving and giving! It was a night “pot” full of innuendos, unlikelihood’s and pro development NIMBY deconstructs. In other words a typical city council meeting.
Even last Friday’s NSNews is still chronicling the nocturnal musings from that infamous council meeting headlining BC NDP President ‘Moneybags’ Keating’s proverbial insight in how to give birth to the burgeoning $210 million “plus” for a new Harry Jerome Rec Centre.
According to Keating all that is required is getting “high” from pot sales and gambling away family security wellness, i.e. attracting pathological gambling – risking bankruptcy and bad debts. Odds only a habitual high roller quenches or how an alien money laundering gang can illegally profit. #casinoPlebiscite
“From a local economic impact perspective, casinos don’t encourage non-gaming businesses to open nearby, because the people who most often visit casinos do not wander out to visit other shops and businesses. A casino is designed to be an all-absorbing environment that does not release its customers until they have exhausted their money. And nearby neighbourhoods are more susceptible to be negatively infected and socially impacted.” #BetTheHouse
Is this what we want councillors… to build a new “family” rec centre on the backs of drug and gambling dependencies. #HarryJeromePlebiscite
At last Monday night’s city council meeting the mayor was whining and crying foul how he and his team slate councillors can’t get respect during the Public Input Period… Does the word HYPOCRITE ever come to mind Grinch. I couldn’t help but take a second look at a city council meeting on July 17 of this year. And lo and behold our mayor counterblow’s his self proclaimed righteousness with his own out of order, unruly retort, chuckling “ha, welcome to North Van”.
A few minutes prior, look closely, camera right at councillor Keating aka BC NDP President waving goodbye to Mr. Wilkinson having been ordered out of chambers by flustered and unhinged Mussatto. The Wilkinson’s were quite upset over the fact they never had been told about the city’s complicit bowling alley gaffe, having bought a condo in the Onni CentreView Camel-not complex. And Premier John Horgan, you must be so damn proud of your party’s contemptible NDP President.
…If you dare take a 2 hour flashback at that night’s fight card from the 3:32 hour/minute mark onward, listen closely to the remarks made by the Wilkinson’s at the Bowling Alley Public Hearing and by the mayor’s large campaign donor Onni and of course Mussatto’s Team Slate Despicable’s approving the Onni Bowling Alley from the July 17 video. You may like the Wilkinson’s and so many other concerned residents realize why they won’t be voting for wannabe mayor Buchanan and Councillor Back on election day October 20, 2018. http://www.cnv.org/your-government/council-meetings/2017-meetings/council-videos
