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
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 votingeither one as this city’s next mayor. #timeToChangeCourse
During last Monday’s Night’s “32 Agenda Items wallowing in 696 pages” fixated on ramin’ & jamin’ through as many new zoning bylaws, rezoning amendments was the passing of MLA Ma’s INSTPP… A wonderful passive aggressive: not today and certainly not tomorrow resolve to our North Shore Traffic Woes. Or what I prefer to milquetoast as a MISTPP: Micromanaging Incompatible Sacrificial Transportation Planning Project.
I’ll save Monday Night’s City Council’s 2 Public Hearing buffoonery for Friday’s blog… As what should not be overlooked is our four out of the six homespun mayoral candidates were interviewed on CBC’s Early Edition Stephen Quinn Show “traffic themed” podcast last week. The podcast certainly offered insight into just how proverbial contentious and artful these wannabe mayoral contenders – no holds barred – plan to be.
There were two standouts for me, first was Linda Buchanan a leader over the last four years for en masse development, renter displacement and having one of theworst city council attendance records over the last fours years swears she has definitive Fake News insight much like MLA Ma, debunking there is no way density contributes to our inner city traffic or commuter woes!
So… when your campaign donor Hollyburn completes its Marlborough 3 OCP 17 bonus floors of density amidst a strong NIMBY petition you flat-out ignored along with voting in favour of Onni’s Centre View twin towers another one of your campaign donors on the adjacent Lonsdale corner will NOT IMPACT the already heavily congested Lonsdale & 13 St. intersection where bus stop overloads are the norm coming from Lynn Valley’s bursting at the seams buses – really. Even if say up to 60% of new building residents cram themselves into a bus, bike or walk to work that still results in a 40% increase in traffic volume!
Secondly, the mayoral candidates acknowledged the need for improved “transit” access to North Van. But it was “only Guy Heywood” who took a “North Shore city bus” to the CBC podcast locale in Vancouver City. One of the few times there was no rhetoric spewing out of the mouths of the other car loving mayoral candidates… Interview starts at about the 11 minute mark of the podcast – you decide.
As I continue my blog campaign to “displace” from City Hall our pro density & horse trading councillors from civic office. #Vote4ChangeOct20
