Monday night city council in 86% unison, drove the final stake into amalgamation’s heart. The following is a condensed version from Monday nights amalgamation discussion, crunching it down from 21 minutes to 8 1/2 minutes. I possibly could have shortened it to 6 minutes or even extended it to 10 minutes. So I’m hoping this will be an acceptable alternative worth your time. #CNVunitedWEstand
And of course the NSRag did not disappoint, hanging on – editorializing that it is waiting for the District’s NRG study which will have absolutely no bearing towards the re-unification of our two cities any time soon. CNVCouncil has emphatically rejected amalgamation regardless of this false alarm 600 robo call, online survey… and you won’t find it being entertained on “CNV” October election ballots. #GameSetMatch
Noteworthy: The NSN is a “resident of CNV” whom unlike the District came to their rescue, relocating their offices and presses after their Lonsdale location went up in flames in 2005. #CNVthereWhenYouNeedUs
From my POV the NSNews needs to change its name to something a little more befitting, representing their despicable Freedom Fighters CNV discourse. How about “The District ★ Trojan Crier”… it has a quantified ring to it don’t you think. #NSNeditorialConspiracy #boycottNSNews

I’ve been asked a number of times… do your love bird seagulls have names – not yet. If anyone has any suggestions would certainly entertain them and would give due credit in an upcoming seagull themed blog.
Re: City Electoral Signs; it has been brought to my attention that last Monday night’s city election bylaws and update re: “Sign Bylaw, 1992, No. 6363” (not the 8643 Elections Assent Voting bylaw). i.e. Limits (prohibits) pre-election campaign materials has already been contested and defeated in BC court and was found to be in breach of S.2(b) of the Charter of Freedoms and Rights! It appears campaign advertising on bike signs or even at bus stop shelters prior the six week election period does not break any laws… however it appears the City has, namely our constitution! (more on Monday) #ConstitutionalSignBylawViolations
Let the free-for-all sign wars begin!
Insurrection: an act or instance of rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority like: an established (CNV) government!
Sound at all familiar NSCAA – North Vancouver Citizen Action Committee and District Renegades? In other words bordering on Conspiracy. i.e. associated groups attempting to bypass the democratic CNV City Council decision making process. #NSCAAreunificationCoup #DistrictAbrogators
Maybe this is why Guy Heywood has not announced running for CNV mayoral ’cause he also wants to be the mayor of DNV? And in the meantime he is anxiously awaiting the results – last day being today – in the NRG Research Group’s online public opinion survey for both District and CNV residents… Has any CNV resident ever heard of this survey, unless that is, you are a member of the Revolutionary NSCAA Guard or follow The
North Van District Voices freedom fighter’s blog.
Unfortunately this reunification exploration coup is blatantly BYPASSING and REPUDIATING CNV democratic elected Council’s current opposition on amalgamation, if anything it is creating further DIVISIVENESS! In order for any chance in the twinning of our two cities would require both existing city councils to come to “in-depth terms” which we know is not going to happen (if ever) according to CNV mayor Mussatto and seemingly most city residents…
So the only way this sponsored DNV Bolshevik survey will have any smack is if and only if it receives 50%+1 from ALL ELIGIBLE CNV VOTERS AND DNV VOTERS! And folks that just isn’t going to happen.
Kerry Morris running for city mayor contests: the matter needs a detailed examination. Is he possibly waiting for the “aftermath” results of this intrusive NRG District survey before making up his mind. This leaves us with OMG pro-density, psycho-lying path Linda Buchanan as the only anti-amalgamation candidate running for CNV mayor on a possible Red October election night – yikes! #cnvSOL
Wanted for CNV Civic Election, October 20, 2018:
A mayoral candidate without any developer collusion, special interest baggage or amalgamation hysteria (I know a tall order).
A candidate who would be the runaway mayoral favourite! #unitedWEstand
Last Monday Night’s city council meeting was unusually uneventful and with M.I.A. councillor Keating playing hooky you knew there was nothing on the table that would jeopardize any of Mussatto’s Team Slate en masse IOU developments… #noCollusionTonight
Hold the presses! – perhaps without Keating present: Agenda items 10 & 11 re: Gaming and Cannabis Revenues – Options for Consideration were removed! Surely it had nothing to do with my Monday’s blog discourse in identifying “option 2” site specific neighbourhood follies whereby City Planning director Mr. Epp was wanting to “pin a casino tail” on one or more of our NIMBY communities without their PRIOR KNOWLEDGE.
I also very much regret letting down my fellow citizens, by not querying later during “Inquiries” WHY items 10 and 11 were removed from the slate. At the time which was not fair to the mayor or City Clerk, had thought I would only receive a runaround type answer – thereby letting them off the hook!… still learning the ropes. #regret
As anticipated all remaining related sign agenda’s – Election Sign Bylaw No. 8643 and Election Sign Bylaw No. 8644 were swiftly and unanimously approved. Running amalgamation election signs is prohibited in CNV.
What was also unexpected sitting in the ante chamber among city staff chatter was when mayor Mussatto queried his city license manager “why license fees could not remain the same.” Offering up a pool hall analogy whereby they would have to pay $42 for each additional pool table and then further asserting “we are not like other cities” and should be offering incentives to businesses to stay or come to our city. Even though the increase was minimal for most businesses going up from $111 to $128 councillors Back and wannabe mayor Buchanan are ready to commit to the “no big deal” increase. #CNVelection164days
But in the meantime… DNV/NRG Research Group: watcha you gonna do now that your amalgamation coup and survey results cannot be voiced within any CNV candidate sign, banner or campaign media advertisement re: Election Sign Bylaw No. 8643… Welcome to North Van City.
…and how could I not… still resonating in my old rock’n roll bones!
