Last Monday night’s meeting of the CNV mayoral minds did not disappoint. Millennial mayoral candidate Michael Willcock stole most of the scenes being played out in front of a packed Centennial Theatre.
Mayor wannabe’s Heywood and Morris spoke in precise “matter of fact” verse, offering clear alternatives in how to best move the city forward. While incumbents Buchanan & Clark were hailing their sanctimonious city council records that empathically contradict their reprehensible city council records. #BuchananClarkHypocrites
Right from the get go, Linda Buchanan during her “why I want to be this city’s next night-mayor” should have i.e. “the truth be known” CONFESSED she has in her hip pocket not one but at least FIVE candidates running for city councillor! Wishing and hoping city voters will BLINDLY, UNBEKNOWNST TO THEM, elect at least THREE of her underhanded Team Slate lackeys. #SubversiveBuchanan
Thereby guaranteeing and enabling a “4 to 3” continuation in more psycho-ling paths for the 2% who bike to work and further densifying and gentrifying every neighbourhood AT WILL as her city council record clearly bears out while continuing to IGNORE MOST NIMBY PETITIONS!

And how could I not…
Tonight’s mayoral candidate opening act will no doubt feature uncanny performances from Councillor’s Buchanan and Clark as they camouflage and or misconstrue their on the record failing pro development math.
Horsetrader Clark will no doubt voice: For I am the one who introduced the city’s 10/10/10 renter policy for all new rental housing starts… The only obvious sink hole in this approach though admirable; is the fact new rental market housing costs for a two or three bedroom family rental unit are now in excess of 2 to 3 thousand smackaroos and will continue to be for many a year hereafter. It doesn’t matter how you slice and dice it Clark your 10% off $2K & $3+K will not cut it. They will be still too UNAFFORDABLE and UNSUSTAINABLE for far too many young families, seniors and those on fixed incomes and thus will only further cloud CNV’s social and economic wellness. #Vote4ChangeOctober20
Wannabe night-mayor Buchanan on the other hand wants our “new norm” development levels to “remain on course” within the loosey goosey forever amended pro development toothless OCP guidelines. Thereby repudiating any and all Regional Strategy Targets now surpassing 2041 densification levels. She is also fostering all purpose-built rental housing by how: RENOVICTING and DISPLACING even more low income residents from their apartment buildings and thereby further shrinking the social and economic wellness of this city. #timeToChangeCourse
CNV MAYORAL CANDIDATES’ MEETING:
TONIGHT 7-9 PM CENTENNIAL THEATRE 2300 LONSDALE AVE.
If you want more of Mussatto’s en masse density projects over and above his ongoing developer projects taking us well into the next city council and beyond… then vote for wannabe Linda Buchanan or Rod Clark. The only real difference I see between these two imposters is: Councillor Clark had a strong city council ‘presence’ while Councillor Buchanan had a much less exemplary attendance record. In fact in 2016 she had the WORSE CITY COUNCIL ATTENDANCE RECORD – choosing to avoid her city councillor responsibilities as a paid city employee. #youdecide
If either one of these despicables is elected as mayor in only 10 days, perhaps CNVites should expect their city’s “Best City To Live In Canada” to drop even further. #Vote4ChangeOct20
…I mean really what do you have to lose by not voting either one as this city’s next mayor. #timeToChangeCourse
Today’s editorial cartoon rewind is a combination of three blogs from last October’s trashing of Onni’s Lucy bronze camel during the Thanksgiving long weekend. And to make matters worse, shortly thereafter Onni’s henchmen verbally accused an innocent senior (Bryan May) in a handicap scooter passing by as the leader of the pack behind the deification of their precious fake art bronze camel. #OnniHenchmen
Adjacent to the disfigured bronze camel statue there is a Onni plaque that emphatically argues this is a historically correct example of the camel used during the North Shore mini gold rush. The truth of the matter is it was the hardier “Dromedary two hump camel” used and even this breed did not perform or live up to expectations. #OnniFakeNews
Of course this did not stop wannabe night-mayor Buchanan to state in an NSN interview that this Arabian one hump camel did in fact represent the kind of camel used during the 1858 Fraser River Gold Rush… Buchanan and her supporters wonder why I depict her wearing crazed glasses, this being only one of many reasons. #Vote4ChangeOct20
… And yesterday while enjoying a fresh java at Beans on Lonsdale in walks Horsetrader Clark tossing his campaign biz card on my table, turns and walks away not saying a word… On my way out he was seemingly having a fake news interview where I placed his campaign card on his table saying “I don’t need this.” We then unfortunately ended up in a feisty back and forth exchange where at one point he told me to go back to Ontario – don’t know where that came from. Then told me to drink some more of Kerry Morris’ milk – ignorant to the fact that I am not working for Morris’ campaign. Do you really want a delirious hotheaded density bedfellow as your city’s next mayor?
Meanwhile back at today’s Thanksgiving flashback.
What happened during last Monday Night’s City Council Fight Card should be an indication in what to expect next week… Like Mussatto’s developer pal Polygon Gallery looking to grab more taxpayer’s money. A 2014 Mussatto campaign donor whom under poor management low-balled their operational costs and its sustainability into the future. Luckily for taxpayers their “11th hour $225 bridged finance request” has been at least deferred to at least next Monday’s city council meeting or will it be deferred to city council’s last chance meeting on October 29th… after CNV citizens have decided if it is time for change or not.
Meanwhile out on the mayoral campaign trail two of our despicable city councillor’s Buchanan n’ Clark are flooding and polluting front lawns and defecating green spaces with their damn wannabe mayoral signs. Two anti NIMBY’s voicing similar sanctimonious robotic platforms that would enable either one IF elected to further deconstruct and devastate the social wellness and livability of our city… All you have to do discerning voters is look at their evidentiary pro density city council records over the last four years. #EnoughBullShit
When you have time take a peek at Guy Heywood and Kerry Morris websites. BOTH could have been written by the other. BOTH offering similar catchy issue themes around housing affordability, traffic congestion, parking, unsettling business climate and offering “open governance”. But nowhere – so far are either one or any candidate running for city mayor offering “open donor transparency.”
In today’s cartoon I have Heywood and Morris joined at the collar bone. But to be fair to Kerry he is not fully committed to the twining of CNV & DNV and in the same breath not ready to denounce amalgamation. As one coffee mate expressed to me: “Is Morris simply swimming upstream in order to reel-in Heywood’s amalgamation supporters.” #youDecide
It is no secret that my blog leans towards Kerry Morris being the city’s next mayor. But IF there was ever a mayoral candidate who mirrored most of his or Heywood’s website and emphatically did not support amalgamation and ran on an: in your face open transparent donor policy… my blog would surely be at their disposal. #daylightCampaign
Hello 911… CNV is in dire need of an independent mayor and untainted city councillors i.e. who are not beholding to a mayoral team and in turn indebted to their vulturous developer donor pals in order to thwart their cout d’etat agenda down the throats of its NIMBY’s… HELP!
Density Darrell’s I.O.U. Legacy shall hamstring mayors forever after unless you’re wannabe mayor Buchanan or Clark. BOTH believing – you can’t have enough density! I.E. Councillor Buchanan going as far as to say this is our city’s new norm while Councillor Clark is perhaps looking for more costly bonanza sized community builds that can further quench his thirst in horse trading demagoguery. #Vote4ChangeOct20 #Enough
BOTH of these wannabe mayor city councillor records readily confirm i.e. that not only are they pro density zealots; they BOTH also favoured and supported the mayor’s $22million Black Necklace for the less than 2% who bike annually to work. Choosing to turn a blind eye on our failing road infrastructures and residential and commercial street parking shortages! BOTH these NIMBY sayers have deliberately sacrificed resident concerns and neighbourhood petitions in the name of sanctimonious hypocrisy while accepting 2018 developer dirty laundered donations. #DaylightCampaign #CampaignTransparency
And I certainly don’t want Guy Heywood or Kerry Morris feeling left out… Friday’s blog is just around the corner.
