The city’s last council meeting before an 8 week hiatus ended as I predicted in a “4 to 3” snort, ne-e-eigh decision to spend AT LEAST $237 MILLION on a new Harry Jerome Titanic SportsPlex!


With 1,602 pages of in-haste density being ram-chucked through last Monday Night’s contemptible city council meeting, it is no wonder they will need 8, that’s eight weeks to recuperate.  Retreating to their ivory towers, having preposterously made a complete farce out of the OCP and Regional Growth Strategy guidelines and DEVASTATING the Harry Jerome Neighbourhood!  Councillors Back, Clark, Bell & Bookham “4 to 3” subservient horse traders, in unison turned their backs on HJ neighbourhood resident concerns…  and yes leaving taxpayers on the hook for any (inevitable) development overruns!

Since our 2014 last elections we have witnessed the en masse deconstruct of our city and City Council; developer bought & paid for and lovin’ to horse trade with Mussatto’s vulturine campaign donors!  (more in Friday’s video blog)  #HadEnoughBuchananClarkBellBack!

Side Bar: What to expect during the city campaigning days of summer…  “Anti-developer rhetoric shaping campaigns ahead of Vancouver election.” https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/british-columbia/article-anti-developer-rhetoric-shaping-campaigns-ahead-of-vancouver-election/?utm_source

Worth mentioning:  Once again Upper Lonsdale Businesses were at the mercy of LL’s watery plunge…  sales noticeably down, especially at the UL coffee shops I visited over the weekend.  Thanks to our mayor and city council this city will always be a Tale of Two Cities:  the Lower Haves and the Upper Have Nots.  #UpperLonsdaleSOL
