Tonight’s city council fight card features: Property Tax Rate Increases, Drinking Water Conservation Plan Bylaw and two Public Hearings. First up addressing bylaws prohibiting Mary Jane non-medicinal Cannabis Production via BCLDB city sales then forwarded to a Public Hearing.
The second Public Hearing entertains the density onslaught at 2601 where the developer Pezzente Holdings and GBL Architects present their case for wanting to ROB a long withstanding green space, expand their development over a lane thus hindering all emergency vehicle accessibility. While in the same breath tooting i.e. farting: REDUCED MID RENTAL RATES BASED ON 2016 NUMBERS against when finished in late 2019 early 2020 the guaranteed much higher rental rate being closer to OVER 2K A MONTH! #cnvSOL
Meanwhile just up the street DNVC Council will be proposing to induct a very “one-sided” city council reunification survey between our two cities. The logistics make since from their perspective with little left in their financial reserve tank, and having green stamped large areas from potential development. So who do you bust for future density growth and financial stability – why of course North Vancouver City! #UpYours!
I am amused by the likes of District councillor Bassam in the NS Rag preaching the advantages in the reunification between the two cities. Does this mean he and his District are willing to pay for half of the proposed new $160+ million Harry Jerome Centre – think not. Instead they would prefer to deflect such issues and prop city service duplication’s as why we should be merging kin. Which of course has little bearing on some of the real reasons like: little density left at the District Inn, suspect financial reserves and a seemingly lack of identity without a business and social waterfront gathering centre OR a $140 million grab-bag their city council would dearly love to gorge. #GetStuffed
Looking back – seems such a long time ago – doesn’t it? Here are according to WordPress my top five most viewed. Though I could have easily made it a top ten. My videos seem quite popular, getting lots of air time. Many as in most are enjoying my gulp, choke caricature of the mayor – edging me to do more which are well in hand aka in the works or storyboarded for this month.
And here we are in a brand new year and no sign of our infamous mayor and city councillors. Is not 4 holiday season weeks off not sufficient hiatus that a fifth Monday is still required to recoup from all that exhausting mayoral team slate autocratic contempt and collusion from 2017.
Mussatto’s oligarchs aka team slate city council hijackers will probably resurrect the already defeated casino proposal later this month or at some point early February as it is running out of Mondays required to resurrect, public input, open house and most importantly getting the working drawings fast tracked and approved by city planners before this sitting council’s final city hall meeting October 15th.
If you want to know if you already haven’t figured out just how corrupt and indebted the mayor and his team slate councillors are standby ’cause “you ain’t seen nothing yet” like what is about to be fast tracked into reality… Unless councillor Buchanan really does want a crack at being our next mayor. Otherwise this will be the fatal, final blow to any chance of her ever becoming mayor. #MussattoTeamSlateDespicables
With that all important increase to high-rise development/project fees kicking in at the break of dawn 2018. The race to the finish line is on – as city hall opens wide their project flood gates welcoming not only sky-high buzzards from abroad but encouraging leeching from within. “Must have” city projects that our mayor and city councillors have decreed for their imminent “departing legacies.” And to no one’s surprise the city has put out an APP desperately needing consultants willing to appease their every wish! …. after all they are running out of time with only 354 days left in MASSatto’s autocracy and poorly managed compliant city planners. #CityDisconnect #CNVSOL
Tonight we will not have to worry about any new development proposals or 2nd or 3rd readings further suffocating our current 2040 density levels. A city council’s stubbornness to only meet on Mondays having now been MIA for “18 weeks” so far in 2017.
Signifying our city’s latest EMBARRASSMENT whereby “Lady” a “two hump camel” used during the mid 1800’s mining gold rush has been bronzed and disfigured …the sculptor, Myfanwy MacLeod decided to lose one of its hump’s in the name of artistic license – eagerly abstaining from “historical facts” in favour being artistically arrogant. Defying facts much like our mayor and his 3 city council stooges bought and paid by Onni who in their “own words:” inscribed on the plaque next to this defecation. Insisting this erroneous bronze “Syrian camel” is “in fact a “facsimile of a camel named Lucky used during the interior BC Gold Rush.” This only further denotes how controversial and disconnected our despotic mayor and his Team Council Hijackers have succumbed – unable to distinguish fact from fiction.
Camel Lucky will become a metamorphic albatross for any of the mayor’s team buffoons running for mayor or city council next year on October 20, 2018. #CamelArrogance #CamelHeresy #CamelControversy
And just could not resist expressing my artistic license this Thanksgiving Day.
