This is what our city crosswalk elephant feet look like as they don’t look like “elephant feet” at all… or for that matter like any other type of toe – err pachyderm animal..


Over our Family Day Losses weekend my wife and I had the pleasure in socializing with a number of good friends at a local restaurant.  Though our conversation’s did not dwell very long on elephant crosswalk markings no one at our table of four except myself knew what these city elephant crosswalk markings looked like.  Though my wife thought they must be those squirrely whirly pedestrian crosswalk designs at the foot of Lonsdale Quay/Seabus area.

We have to Twilight Zone back to the infamous December 2017 city council meeting agenda when this issue was debated, ending with the mayor’s inappropriate ignominious wisecrack .  Both city councillors Bookham and Bell raised issues over these elephant markings, one being not readily identified as pedestrian/cyclists crosswalks by tourists… as well as by most non-cycling motorists.  After all they look like solid rectangular blocks and nothing more.  So my good interpretive graphic deed of the week is to assist in the unraveling of what city elephant feet markings look like… you’re welcome mayor.

*pachyderm: a very large mammal with thick skin, especially an elephant, rhinoceros, or hippopotamus.


The mayor and his HUBies with the aid of our city engineers will continue to coerce cycling-psychosis down our throats, realizing they are running out of time.  As in just a little over 35 weeks we will be electing hopefully an untainted new mayor & city council.  At which time hopefully giving serious consideration to the registration and licensing of cyclists to help pay for these daunting crosswalks and to be correctly renamed “Black Necklace bike lanes” meant for cyclists ONLY.  i.e. not for vehicles or pedestrians who are paying city taxes for cyclists to have the exclusive right to these $20K+ bike lanes.  Unlike these same resident cyclists being able to WTF: cycle on any and all city streets… and at times riding precariously on our “pedestrian only sidewalks.”

And hopefully our city’s diminishing cycling community (having lost many due to the unaffordability of our city) won’t feel radically inclined like this recently caught violent NYC bicycle mob smashing and terrorizing drivers in one of our mayor’s fav city’s Manhattan NY NY…

A city council suspended in animation, trapped in a Twilight Zone euphemistic world!


I realize my blog at times can be quite cynical in the caricaturing of the mayor, his team slate councillors and managerial city staff.  But I have discovered over the 3 years I have posted my blog that other related and more politically correct blogs and other handle-me-with-care media outlets has not advanced or had any effect on the mayor and his 4 to 3 autocratic rule of thumb.  His vainglorious CityShaping vision consists of paving 20 million of tax payers dollars on failing bike lanes and surrendering our skyline to his OCP over densified developer investors from his 2014 re-election campaign.  The mayor’s SHORTsightedness “putting the cart ahead of the horse” has left our daily transportation infrastructures in dire gridlock while local small businesses are unable to keep or find local part time help whom in turn can no longer afford to live in our city.

For me the most disturbing aspect during Mussatto’s dictatorship reign is the loss of so many hardworking people who have landscaped, forged our city’s heritage.  Households from our once thriving lower class, people on fixed incomes, single parent families, seniors, artists and young families.  Many having been displaced, evicted from our city’s shores without a thank you or ever offering temporary housing assistance – Arrivederci, good riddance eh Grinch.

But I am beginning to read and hear more voices standing up against our mayor and his team slate councillors stranglehold on our city.  Like discerning voices on pages 3 & 4 “Change We Want” in the recently published The Global Canadian Newspaper.  Also checkout their facebook page featuring other related stories: http://www.facebook.com/theglobalcanadian/

Finally CNVites are standing up, fed up with all the density and failing related infrastructures, drawing a line in the sand… “enough is enough!”  Change in municipal governance is on its way come October 20th – Arrivederci Mussatto Team Slate councillors!

Note the logo/badge on Mussatto’s Napoleonic hat is the  iconic ‘Anarchy symbol’.  Representing the mayor and his 3 Team Slate city councillors autocratic “4 to 3” empowering decision making on ALL OCP DENSITY BONUS High Rises and bylaw amendments and higher density re-zoning on behalf of many campaign donor developers.

City Councillors Buchanan and Back continue to give our incredulous mayor a “free pass” when it comes to degrading women!


All hail misogynistic Mussatto or so you would think from BOTH city councillors Buchanan running for mayor and Back a non city resident running for re-election whom remain tight lipped over the mayor’s vulgarity towards women during city council’s last city council meeting of 2017.  Two seemingly indignant city councillors unwilling to voice any displeasure with the mayor over his prior camel toe perverseness in a revamped single shot cameras and new sound system council chambers.

Last Monday night BOTH these women had a long 6 week overdue opportunity to express to city council and city residents their disgust over the mayor’s camel toe – elephant feet perverted innuendo.  For either one of them to actually believe the mayor did not know what camel toe reference implied only goes to prove just far up the mayor’s butt they both are…  An opportunity that will surely bite deep into their chances in ever getting elected on October 20th in just 9 months, 5 days.  #camelToeFreePass

Mirror, mirror on the wall how deep is the mayor into his own falsehoods and does he truly believe we are that gullible.


Onni’s Lucky camel as in “as luck would have it” is once again getting caught up in controversy this time by our mayor’s “insistence” in blaming the bronze one hump Dromedary statue [wishing it was a historical correct Lucy the two hump Bactrian camel] as why he should be excused from his derogatory remarks comparing tight fitting women’s clothing in the vulva area as elephant feet er camel toe  #MeToo

A controversy much like his ‘aggressive agenda warning’ as he was shutting down city council chambers for 2017.  Tonight’s Monday Night Fight Card is tame, the calm before the storm with only one aggressive and contentious agenda issue.  Our mayor and most of city council sucking up to HUB’s request to adapt the Crosswalk Use by Cyclists and Street Occupancy Permits Bylaw: “elephant feet strips” or as our mayor likes to point out are interchangeable, they’re like camel toes.


How is it that the mayor can so adamantly declare ignorance in not ever knowing the meaning of ‘camel toes’ as reported in the The Global Canadian Newspaper.  Why didn’t he use the same comparison referring to them as crosswalk camel feet ?  Has he not been around the Onni camel long enough to realize this “life-like” camel does not have toes rather hooves!  You decide from this clip I grabbed from last Dec. 11th meeting in question picturing the mayor laughing at his own self gratifying vulgar remarks.  And joining in is smilin’ CAO Ken Tollstam and looking down at her notes seemingly amused by the mayor’s reference is City Clerk Karla Graham.

WARNING the following video insert graphic may be offensive to some and have self-rated it ‘R’ and is not intended to be offensive to women.  Rather only to depict just how disingenuous our mayor is in wanting us to “believe” he thinks camel’s have toes and not hoof feet.
