It was pointed out to me by a couple of my CoffeeMates in Wednesday’s NSN; whereby each of the four more familiar known candidates were given full page ads declaring why they should be CNV’s next mayor. Biggest standout for everyone at my java table was make no mistake about; was over what our two notorious incumbent’s rendered to ink.
Between all the chuckles and disgust they were not at all surprised to read how these two artful dodgers want to be personified in their attempt in becoming CNV’s next Mussatto-like mayor. #misdirection
BOTH wannabe night-mayor Buchanan and horse trader Clark, DO NOT want you to dwell over the amount of fornicating density they willingly procured within the limited confines of our city. BOTH these NIMBY HATERS do not want you to remember with every new highrise development start they voted in favour has had an unsettling adverse impact on our neighbourhoods. Nor do they want you to remember with every new rental development they readily displaced (off-shored) between 2015 to 2017 hundreds of longtime city residents from their rental units. It wasn’t really until this year they realized the negative social and economic impact it was having on our city. #NIMBYhaters
BOTH NEVER argued or have demanded that their developer (horsetrading) buds should ever have to worry or be accountable over the amount of INCREASED traffic/commuter volume or the DENSITY SHOCK their developments are or will have on our enclaved city’s immediate social and economic wellness. #timeToChangeCourse #EnoughDensityShock
Usually August is one of my slower viewed months with North Van Shorians on vacation – but not this year. Add to that my coffee shop visits to being stopped up and down Lonsdale; I am hearing more times than not their frustration being inundated by so much (noise) construction, lane closures, not enough parking for shop owners who in turn are unable to find and sustain qualified help.
But there is now one noticeable theme rising in these one on one conversations… everybody’s talking about the upcoming election and how they want a voice in who’s in and who’s out around City Council Chambers head table. “Most” seem to want a fresh “developer resistant” city council that will actually LISTEN and are first and foremost ACCOUNTABLE to city residents – placing their concerns/issues ahead of developer interests!
And in my Upper Lonsdale community there is an overwhelming 1,000 resident movement to swath the entire existing city council from office and if they could would also love to eradicate most of our City Planners. This is how volatile and angered a growing number of city residents have become i.e. have had their fill – have had enough of mayor Mussatto and his city councillors love fest with developers…
Perhaps Guy Heywood or Kerry Morris deserve a closer look in becoming our next mayor. I mean what have you got to lose after 4 years of unprecedented demo-victions, gentrified housing and so much damn traffic chaos… ALL which wannabe night-mayor Buchanan concurs: makes our city one of the MOST LIVABLE city’s anywhere. #FakeNewsBuchanan #vote4changeOct20
A contemptible pattern was quite evident in June’s most viewed when it came to the Harry Jerome Lands Public Hearing rezoning. It was seemingly a staged performance featuring bad acting & non believable misdirection led by Mussatto and his wannabe night-mayor Linda Buchanan; while other land-grabbing city councillor imposters were lassoing horse trading – hee haw!
Surely CNV deserves a city council that has a strong neighbourly back bone, void of developer brokering and backroom corruption. Obstinate hardened traits held by our current spineless & vainglorious city council despicables. #vote4changeOctober20
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
