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
Translink feels all we need “to hold us over” on yonder North Shore is a couple more buses and one more scheduled seabus during peak hours…. sounds fair if you live in Surrey or looking for a new rail transit extension from Broadway to UBC. #ScrewNorthShore
NOW that we know the North Shore is not a priority with the Translink brass and with traffic and commuter congestion at an all time precedent high. Our transportation problems can only IMPLODE then EXPLODE since Translink will not be seriously addressing our dire transportation issues until MAYBE Phase 3 – ten years from now!
Our North Shore cities (especially CNV) must STOP all new “proposed” high rise development like: Darwin’s HJ Lands as we now know is SHORT ON CASH and “is going to take WTF 8+ years to complete!” A project strongly opposed during the last Town Hall Meeting. A development in total disregard to OCP zoning height restrictions and will further handicap our traffic woes, increase street parking shortages and further contribute to our city bus overloads – all in the name of North Van Fornication.
Same holds true re: $160+ million HJ MegaDome that will take 3+ YEARS to complete and will be SHARING 23rd Street with Darwin’s en masse development! #RenovateHarryJeromeRecCentre #ItCanBeDone
We are running low on green spaces, trapped in traffic gridlock all day amidst TransLink shortcomings! #NoNorthShoreReliefInsight
We are in a transportation crisis on the North Shore – Translink and our NDP parliamentary secretary responsible for TransLink MLA Ma seemingly could care less… and the same can be said about our infamous mayor & his subordinate city planners! The Translink Phase Two Investment Plan has very little to offer in the way of transportation relief on the North Shore! #NothingWillChange #NorthShoreSOL
Oh what a night it was, no surprises when it came to frivolously tossing taxpayers money on this and that but at least council did not include money for a new kitchen sink… maybe next week. #cnvSOL
Councillor Clark’s motion to write to the Metro Vancouver Board expressing strong opposition repealing any salary increase and pension bonus was of course and certainly not to my surprise intercepted by one of Mussatto’s perilous team hijacker’s councillor Keating. Deliberately wanting to divide his motion into two parcels. One repealing the one time, pension retro gift and the other the 15% salary – fed tax offset that will not begin until next year’s lower mainland mayors and councillors are elected. Thus offering Mussatto a much needed saving grace after giving himself an under wraps mayors’ council raise and one time retirement bonus under the guise of a DELIBERATE UNRECORDED VOTE.
Noteworthy: there was a prior Metro Van Board itemized agenda made available to the public and media. A point councillor and wannabe mayor Buchanan resonated in supporting the mayor’s account of its council’s procedural protocol regarding agenda items. Of course Buchanan did not mention the mayors unwillingness not to record “his vote.” Perhaps a precursor in just how “opaque and underhanded” Linda Buchanan will be if elected mayor in 7 months time. #disingenuous
Then with one foot out the door a new agenda item materialized from CEO Tollstom bringing forward a lover’s letter from outgoing confederate District of Vancouver mayor Walton wanting to reopen amalgamation er reunification conversations! Profoundly mystifying EVERY COUNCILLOR whom each had serious concerns, listing the many negative impacts it would have on their city! It was reiterated over and over by a number of councillors that City Council has already thoroughly DEFEATED a DNVC carbon copy motion in 2016. Having said all that a “mayor Mussatto” 4 to 3 split decision on two fronts will carry it – cha-ching back to city staff and council – UNBELIEVABLE! More on this in Friday’s “Get Stuffed Video”.. first things first.
Metro Vancouver’s board of directors voted themselves a healthy retirement allowance and a hefty pay adjustment. “We’re not trying to have more take-home pay, we’re just trying to keep the next elected group at the same pay as they are today,” says board chairman or is it con man – Greg Moore. #BloodSuckers #NoVotesRecorded
DNVC mayor Walton did not vote for these pay increases… or did he?… KNOWING in advance that the majority of Metro Vancouver mayors were in favour – ready to bonus their (retirement) salary chest’s. Today we live in a “cloaked unrecorded incriminating political arena”… Too bad… if only we could send them or at least mayor Mussatto to jail for just one day for all his public money grabbing without “Public Input” – sound familiar CNV residents. #disingenuous
Why are Mussatto’s expenses so high coming from a (hypocrite) mayor who insists we should be walking, cycling or taking transit to work.
This cycling imagery is wrong on so many fronts, perhaps the BC Child Protection Services should be notified and the North Shore SRA should be reprimanded, spanked for promoting such troubling, freewheeling practices. They are anything but “safe route advocates” willingly encouraging unsafe cycling habits that will cause unnecessary injury (death) to children especially during this wintry season… I thought I had seen it all – unbelievable. #EpicInsanity #NorthShoreSRArenegades #CyclingGoneWrong
“The people have spoken”… well actually NSN publisher Kvarnstrom only a few people weighed in on your Readers Choice Awards. And when it came to choosing a favourite North Shore mayor I and others would like to see the beef, “the ballots,” a breakdown in how many out of 5,500 actually did vote for a mayor. i.e. How many of the supposed 5,5oo cast ballots were there for each NS mayor and keep in mind DNVC has a much larger population. I guess DNVCites dislike their mayor more than I thought, or did they like myself and others frankly could not elect a favourite mayor from your NSN Readers Choice Awards… And why did you choose a very outdated waterfront/skyline at the bottom of your pg. 4 The People Have Spoken babble – did it have to meet mayor Mussatto’s approval?
StatCan data shows overall North Shore Tri-City population in 2016 at 181,506! And for conservative argument sake let’s bring down that number to anyone aged 18 and over to 100,00-ish potential voters. And ignoring the fact that both the larger papa bear DNVC and mama bear CNV populations are going through since the end of 2017 exponential and unprecedented growth! http://www.nsnews.com/news/statcan-data-shows-north-shore-population-slightly-up-1.9771546
The real winners in the Readers Choice Awards was of course NSNews MILKING WINNERS in placing quarter, half to full page ads in the their paper: “CHA-CHING!”
WARNING: Anti high density/commuter burdened voter’s beware come October 20th! For the votes the mayor received in this dubiously bias readers poll highlights just how aggressive and determined local city staffers, HUB cyclists and socialites are in their support in wanting wannabe councillor Buchanan to be their next psycho-ling, pro density mayor, currently hiding under the mayor’s inglorious coattail.
The good news in all this is the NSN Willy Wanka
Choice Awards did not offer the obvious 4th choice in the favourite mayoral category: “none of the above” which would have been an overwhelming first choice for most on the North Shore. #NoneOfTheAbove #WillyWankaAwards
Paul Sullivan contributing writer to the NSN reported on a recent North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce “traffic yammering” Breakfast. A morning brekkie featuring guest “pro density” speakers MLA’s Thornthwaite, Sultan and parliamentary secretary for TransLink and pro cyclist’s Ma. http://www.nsnews.com/opinion/columnists/sullivan-adding-housing-will-not-remove-traffic-jams-1.23103434
Three unlikely bedfellows whom have copiously rationalized and no doubt had a little help from their respective mayors and BFF city councillors, i.e. the “hostage takers” behind our traffic woes. Despicable’s indebted to their campaign development backers and vainglorious egos; having heedlessly voted in favour of EVERY high density project after another to the point where we have now surpassed 2041 regional levels!
MLA Densifier’s Dumb, Dumber and Dim-wit (you decide which one is which), had better soon realize their pro density North Shore city councillor pals come next year’s civic elections may not as in probably won’t be re-elected with a few of these City Slickers like our mayor not running for re-election. At which point ALL three MLA’s will be confronted by new city hall board of directors. North Shore City Councils that won’t be in favour of more density, more unaffordable development nor will they ever be in favour of taxing our highways and bridges… and there lies your Density Fate of ever again getting re-elected.
As Grinch aka mayor Mussatto has sarcastically vetted, “Welcome to North Van, ha, ha.”
