Last Monday night Councillor and wannabe mayor Buchanan wanted to know: “what is driving our congestion” while noting a decrease in West Van City population. Then blaming added ferry route traffic, commuter bridge bottlenecks and NEVER focusing in on our city’s inner traffic volume congestion and lane closures she helped create and will continue to forge by voting in favour of one OCP over density development after another and always without ample parking. Projects since her re-election in late 2014 that have put our inner city traffic modes and means in an endless chokehold. Advocating and prioritizing inane 20 million dollar cycling lanes which have not put a dent (pun intended) “eased” our transportation woes – not one iota!
Stache POV: Noteworthy is now with the new camera playback format all we can see are single tight shots of councillors at city hall council meetings. The mayor has unscrupulously done away with wider group and full shots catching councillors Buchanan and Back whisper chatting while one of their none Team Slate city councillors is speaking. Or shots of councillor Keating when he decides to show up for a council meeting, forever and ever texting or looking down at his laptop perhaps doing other unrelated business communique on city taxpayers dollar. #disingenuousMayor #tightShots
