UNPRECEDENTED DENSITY FOREVER POSSIBLE IN UPPER LONSDALE


My morning CoffeeBrew crowd have ordained Councillors Back, Clark, Bell & Bookham as the “Four Horsemen of the Harry Jerome Apocalypse.”  The density flood gates are forever open thanks to these four despicables.  And developers will make damn sure Darwin’s “city council” approved 30 tower is the new density bar, aka height standard for all new projects north of 17th Avenue.  #CollusionGluttonyHypocrisySabotage

Well at least those of us north of seventeenth like me know who not to vote for on October 20th.  It is also a good reason why we should also release (if we only could) our city administrators i.e. OCP City Planners and Engineers who have embraced the new towering heights demagoguery north of 17th and every other high rise project throughout our city since 2014.  Anti NIMBY’s who have made a complete mockery out of our OCP and on the record City Planning Dir. Mr. Epp repudiating Regional Growth Strategy Levels now sitting somewhere beyond 2041 population growth levels.  #CityHallCorruption

And lest we forget and never ever should we let wannabe night-mayor Buchanan off the hook.  EVERYWHERE you turn you are sooner than later faced with a “Buchanan” detour, a lane closure, a construction site delay or left frustrated trying to find street parking in and around every damn construction site.  Especially right now on Keith Rd. east and on 3rd Street between Queensbury and St. Andrews – what a bottlenecking nightmare they are during 3 to 6 pm rush hour!

EVERYONE of these developments, including the new Hollyburn apartment project which is of course thanks to our developer compliant city hall is permitted to shut down the curb lane at the intersection of Lonsdale and 13th for the next couple of years at their leisure.  You can emphatically BLAME BUCHANAN and her fellow Mussatto Team Slate that includes non city resident Holly Back.  Despicables who IGNORED EVERY Hollyburn neighbourhood petition, Public Hearing and emails against this colluding project… More city resident voters you can “count on” not willing to elect any Mussatto Team Slate collusion member running in our October 20 civic election.  #Enough2014CityCouncil

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…
