With today’s ESCALATING construction costs showing no signs in slowing down, by the time the proposed “HJ Titanic” SportsPlex Centre is built, I assure you overrun costs will be well beyond today’s $210 MILLION DOLLAR price tag! Meaning: the leasing of the Harry Jerome Lands to Mussatto’s double dipping donor Darwin Construction was: “be the first to know” nothing less than one hell of a bargain land grab!” This will surely lead to the HJ Titanic’s booty sinking in its own glutenous shortsightedness.
The only alternative is to lose the damn Olympic size pool & curling rink and build it in a cost effective timely measured components, afforded and rationalized by the newly elected city council. i.e. when comps mentis, rationale returns to city council in over a decade.
My POV is still and will always remain the same… renovate the existing Harry Jerome CRC and tell Darwin to go “multiply elsewhere.” And in the upcoming election I will not be voting for the return of any of these colluding city councillors or those shameless enough to run for mayor. They have proven to be in the pockets of their 2014 campaign donors or colluding horse traders. Either way in my mind they are incompetent civic legislators, failing to equate the “social construct of our existing neighbourhoods.” i.e. having turned their backs on NIMBY’s time after time, over and over and over again! #Enough! #Vote4Change
And finally tonight we will witness the final scenes in a made for city council staged play I’ve entitled: “The Councillor Back Fix Is In.” Mayor Mussatto, wannabe mayor Buchanan, Councillor Keating will be wearing their pseudo masks denouncing such an oversized recreational centre and their concerns over the Harry Jerome Lands unprecedented 30 & 26 storey faulty towers… HYPOCRITES who have since their 2014 re-elections have recklessly approved every prior high rise development. Mussatto’s Team Slate: Buchanan, Keating and Back having turned their backs on EVERY neighbourhood petition, letters and emails in protest. #LestWeNeverForgetOnOctober20
How in the hell mayor and city councillor despicables can Darwin Construction via Colliers International Realty have had the audacity to send out to local business/retail establishments earlier this week a mail-out brochure prior any final decision making on their “leased” commercial spaces. Retail floor plans they are currently advertising as office spaces you can now “own!” i.e. after complying with the requirements of the BC Real Estate Dev. Marketing Act and filing a disclosure statement. #unlawfulAct
Two weeks ago city council only approved the rezoning of the Harry Jerome Lands to new unprecedented fornicating heights. “NOTHING IS YET ETCHED IN STONE REGARDING THE FINAL USE OF THESE LANDS – TO BE DECIDED “IN COMBINE” WITH CITY COUNCIL AND NOT BEFORE THE NEW HJ REC CENTRE HAS BEEN APPROVED!” #FoulPlay
Back in the nineties I was for 3 years the Art Director for the largest architect firm at the time in Alberta (TCEP). I know how much design time and print turnaround it takes to produce one of these “sophisticated” candy coated colour brochures. I designed umpteen of these type brochures, AO Boards and their annual calendar during my years at this architect firm. Whom in 2010 merged with other architect and engineer firms across Canada and are now collectively known as DIALOG.
The point I am making is my credentials tell me this was not an overnight rush job! Darwin under wraps may have been GREEN LIT months ago – prior the rezoning HJ Lands Public Hearing from only two weeks ago! #collusion #InsideJob
Darwin “is” a double-dipping donor to Mussatto’s 2014 campaign and is about to be richly rewarded 8 YEAR FOLD. No commercial realtor would EVER RISK being LIABLE in selling retail space in a building(s) that has not yet been APPROVED by the respective CITY COUNCIL! Nor would they ever be willing to waste money on a brochure on behalf of their “client” (Darwin) if they knew CNV City Council/City Planners and “mayor” were completely onside for this en mass mammoth fornicating development! #InsideTrading
I have iterated over and over again about the backroom corrupt governance of our existing city council, city planners and our SELLOUT MAYOR. I have truly had enough! #Vote4ChangeOctober20
