Our developer donor indebted mayor and “unelected” city clerk, new CEO and in-Epp OCP Planning Director have had more than enough time since July 23rd’s last meeting to over agenda-size and proceed to ramrod their hyper-density agenda through tonight’s expected (yawn) city council 4 1/2 to 5 hour meeting. And don’t expect the 3 remaining city council meetings to show any less mercy when it comes to pushing through the mayor’s Manhattan CityShaping final and Last Testament…. all aboard.
This weekend is your last chance to catch your breath before the onslaught of density projects by our non compos mentis density-struct mayor MASSatto. While our anti NIMBY City Planners and newbie via Edmonton CEO Ms. McCarthy are all aboard for this city council’s final push for: more density, to hell with road infrastructures – foutre de congestion traffic and let’s keep evicting MORE RENTERS for our mayor’s Manhattan CityShaping legacy.
The 10/10/10 or is it 10/maybe20/perpetuity renter bullshit is not going to attract many new or entice previous renters to: come back y’all to one of our upcoming 2019-21 market value rental projects. The below market value rentals within will still rob young families, seniors $2K+ a month of their monthly hard earned income or pension. And now further jacked-up by our NDP’s (MLA Ma) 2019 landlord fee increase from 4 to 4.5%!
And lest we shall never forget this entire City Council under Mayor Grinch’s cunning said NO to the previous Clark government’s $500 million Low Cost Housing Program that the City of Vancouver and the District mayor’s “welcomed.” Now these same reprobates are saying in an election year: “low income affordable housing can truly only come from provincial or federal intervention” which they ALL LAST YEAR DECLINED! #CityCouncilHypocrites #despicalbles #disingenuous
Density Darrell’s I.O.U. Legacy shall hamstring mayors forever after unless you’re wannabe mayor Buchanan or Clark. BOTH believing – you can’t have enough density! I.E. Councillor Buchanan going as far as to say this is our city’s new norm while Councillor Clark is perhaps looking for more costly bonanza sized community builds that can further quench his thirst in horse trading demagoguery. #Vote4ChangeOct20 #Enough
BOTH of these wannabe mayor city councillor records readily confirm i.e. that not only are they pro density zealots; they BOTH also favoured and supported the mayor’s $22million Black Necklace for the less than 2% who bike annually to work. Choosing to turn a blind eye on our failing road infrastructures and residential and commercial street parking shortages! BOTH these NIMBY sayers have deliberately sacrificed resident concerns and neighbourhood petitions in the name of sanctimonious hypocrisy while accepting 2018 developer dirty laundered donations. #DaylightCampaign #CampaignTransparency
Our infamous mayor and his colluding City Councillors love affair with wall to wall density like: “it’s a good fit for the neighbourhood” mantra over mobility and infrastructure deficiencies are the head to head key issues I am hearing in coffee shops in both Upper and Lower Lonsdale. A close second is our city’s UNAFFORDABILITY and SHRINKING commercial and residential street parking.
Citizens have had ENOUGH of this city council’s NIMBY disconnect. Some going as far as to say to me if only we could vote these scoundrels out of office today! I would go one step further insisting if only we could also OVERHAUL our City Planners and Black Necklace and “no right hand turn on red lights” Engineers today! #Vote4ChangeOct20
If you think we have not had ENOUGH DENSITY, CONSTRUCTION, LANE CLOSURES, NOISE POLLUTION or LIMITED STREET PARKING… then on October 20 vote for density proud Linda Buchanan. This drama queen wants you to believe the sudden unprecedented upheaval of every neighbourhood she helped deconstruct over the last 4 years, is now the NEW NORMAL for our city. Advocating we should never turn back the hand of density. #DensityProudBuchanan #handofdensity
Our gentrified unaffordability is chasing away too many young families, seniors, artists and low income residents from our shores, choosing instead to live in sustainable greener communities. Promoting a couple coach houses, offering 10/10/10 or 10/20/perpetuity rentals will entice families to stay in our city is ludicrous, naive, having missed the boat!
With less and less low income earners/families consuming & feeding our city’s economy while continuing to build MORE costly high rises and market value rentals is a recipe for “socio-economic genocide.”
If anything you have to hand it to mayor Darrell R. Mussatto, for he did it his way. His empowered “4 to 3” elected Team Slate enabled him to coerce behind closed doors his en mass fornicating CityShaping and psycho-ling path agenda into every corner and all points within our enclaved city. The lack luster turnout in our last election was all Mussatto needed to turn our city into an unaffordable, congested, irreversible Manhattan backlot heading into the next decade! #cnvSOL
And now mayor Mussatto has Councillor Linda Buchanan waiting in the wings – raring to complete his en masse CityShaping Manhattan Project. Also don’t let wannabe night-mayor Buchanan trip you up in believing she just now decided “this year” to run for mayor. She actually made it known TWO YEARS AGO as I then illustrated in a number of blogs. #hocuspocusBuchanan
*Email Update: Was just asked why I had “crowned” Linda Buchanan… sources tell me she can be quite the “drama queen.”
But what is disingenuously quite clear is the mayor did not announce he was retiring from City Hall governance until March of this year. Which is WTF: well after Buchanan’s initial announcement TWO YEARS AGO! They BOTH KNEW back in the summer of 2016 Density Darrell was not running for re-election! There is no way anyone could ever convince me Buchanan would dare run against her density idle. DRM had already made up his mind NOT TO RUN for re-election as far back as the summer of 2016! #hocuspocusMussatto
