June’s Sunday Funny featuring wannabe mayor Buchanan’s unbiased logic on any upcoming developments… like “approving both” a new HJ MegaSportsPlex and Darwin’s twining Megaliths – devastating the Harry Jerome Community!


I’m a fan tried and true,
I’m a fan of doubling density,
How ’bout you?
Say it loud, say it proud,
We want more density, density!
Fight, fight, win, win!
Go Harry Jerome Titanic Rec Centre
Go Darwin Twining Megaliths
‘Cause I want to be your next mayor!
Rah, rah, rah,
Sis-boom-bah!

Carpet Density-Bombing coming to EVERY NEIGHBOURHOOD thanks to: they’re (Holly) back – aka Mussatto Team Bandits!


Carpetbagger Witchy Back is back in Mussatto’s Team Fold – turning a deaf ear, “overriding” yet another neighbourhood’s protests/concerns at a Public Hearing over the wrong kind of density on their street by yet another Mussatto empowered hijacking “4 to 3” scorecard.

Seriously, why do we even bother having Public Hearings when the “majority” of the concerns on any given recorded development is ignored.  Which by the way was the exact sentiments of those against this twining housing project i.e. left helpless and in disgust with “Mussatto’s Team Knows Best Slate”.  A neighbourhood like so many in our city losing its character for the almighty sake of densification, deconstructing and alienating neighbours from each other.

Wannabe night-mayor Buchanan and the rest of her Team Buffoons want to tear down one neighbourhood after another and screw zoning bylaws by setting a strong message to any homeowner who wants to redevelop their property in (as Back put it) ‘tiny little houses’… ‘twining infill houses, each over 3,000 sq. ft.’ providing unsightly density for up to 4 families and with only two extended family and friends front parking spots! 

Which leads me to today’s blog… with the just passed “double your money” housing project that will surely encourage other single family home owners to follow suit under the umbrella of skyrocketing home prices.  Will our entire city council turn their backs on an entire neighbourhood during the upcoming Monday Night’s Harry Jerome Public Hearing dedicated to the en masse deconstruction of two Upper Lonsdale city blocks.  (If ever I want to be wrong)

In one corner we have Councillors Bell, Clark & Bookham wanting to bulldoze the existing HJCRC, lawn bowling, Silver Harbour Centre, tennis courts and Norsman (skateboard) Park and titanic-size it one block north with an all encompassing enchilada Community Sports Centre costing over $200 million hinged and dependent on ripping up existing height and masse city building bylaws: succumbing to Mussatto’s double dipping campaign “investor” Darwin Construction.

Mayor Mussatto and his anti NIMBY councillors Buchanan, Keating & Back may not like the idea of spending $200 million of city taxpayers money on a new HJ ‘Monster SportsPlex’.  But in order to pay back their campaign donor Darwin they must in copious approve a new Harry Jerome Watering Hole.  Without joint adjudication, there can be no unprecedented towering development on the existing Harry Jerome Lands.  Welcome to CNV Politics 101… where every neighbourhood is the property of Mussatto’s city council and his notorious city planners!

Battle Royal: new Harry Jerome Centre vs. odds on favourite double dipping Mussatto donor Darwin Properties.


Here we are 28 days since the mayor has faced the cameras at a city hall meeting.  And what we saw, err didn’t see, during the almost 5 hour marathon was very little camera imagery of our infamous mayor, especially when he had his microphone turned on discussing the issues from his perspective.  Why was that Grinch… am I and others having a definitive impact on your hyperbole demeanor?

A majority of the camera framing for agenda item #16 (below) was a 3 shot of councillors Buchanan, Back and Clark.  Why was that Darrell, why all of a sudden have you become so camera shy during city hall meetings – hmm.  And yet when you want to give yourself a vainglorious pat on the back – you can’t wait to share it’s infamy with the television/print media.  #MussattoDoubleExposure

And on an appreciative note…

 

 

 

 

A Bridge Too Far: Any chance for an Integrated North Shore Planning Project to have any kind of Success it must First REALIZE ALL Future/Proposed High Rise Developments must be STOPPED Dead in their Tracks!


Again… any chance for an Integrated North Shore Planning Project to have any kind of success especially within our city limits, it must first REALIZE ALL future and proposed High Rise Developments must be STOPPED dead in their tracks!  A number of projects come to mind, one being an unwanted casino (with hotel?), another is the proposed too big for its britches massive Harry Jerome Rec Centre.  And where HJCRC and seniors lawn bowling have been located for over 50 years is where double dipping campaign donor Darwin Properties want to add around 1,500 MORE residents to our already 2041 growth rate – enough density!
