Psst… Sources tell me Councillor Clark is running for mayor and WTF: Out-of-Towner Councillor Back will be in his corner as will be Cha-Ching Darwin Construction!


All mayor support systems on deck… if Councillor Clark is ever going to see the light of day as CNV Mayor; he is going to need the support of horse trader developer pal Darwin Construction in order to keep pace with Councillor Buchanan’s donor bank i.e. Onni, Polygon and Hollyburn like-backers.  #ElectionDonorTransparency #DaylightCampaignFinancing

And it should come to no surprise that Buchanan & Back have (sob) parted ways.  Wannabe night-mayor Buchanan can’t have someone like Holly on her team who voted in favour of the $240M HJ Sportsplex and Darwin’s takeover of the Harry Jerome Lands with an 8 year en masse dual towers build – all which Linda opposed.  Projects that would surely lessen her slim chances in becoming mayor.  Developments that HJ neighbourhood overwhelmingly did not support and on election night will have the last word by not voting for any city councillor who supported these unprecedented monstrosities… I wonder if horse trader Councillor Bell will join Clark’s Team or will Don walk away from the political arena.

FTR: non city resident Councillor Back has the exclusive honour in being the ONLY councillor who voted in favour of EVERY hair raising towering development in our city over the last four years! 

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
