Tonight’s waning last quarter city council meeting offers up a multitude of housing and zoning bylaw amendments and many developer pal funding appropriation thank you’s and WTF street closures.


Tonight’s city council meeting should again not be any different from any previous city council meeting when it comes to “stacking the deck” in favour of their developer pals and appropriating large sums of taxpayers’ cash to their campaign donor buds to Mussatto’s Team Slate closing down 26 St. West at Lonsdale based on a sham Pezzente traffic study “contradicting” ICBC’s legitimate traffic study report.

The majority of 26 St. neighbourhood did not favour the oversized foot print for the new development or want to lose their green space or street access to Lonsdale.  But when you are just a taxpaying resident and not a Mussatto campaign investor the odds will never ever be in your favour…  But tonight’s road closure doesn’t stop here.  They also want to create a bylaw to: close and remove highway dedication off 100 Block East 22nd Street.  #UpperLonsdaleUnite  #Vote4ChangeOct20

But there is a twilight of good news in tonight’s meeting… a Notice of Motion by wannabe mayor Rod Clark wants the city to endorse the recommendation of the BC Rental Housing Task Force: that the maximum rental increase be cut from inflation plus 2% to inflation only, and that the automatic 2% increase be eliminated.

Mayor Mussatto leaving behind a legacy chalk-full of self-inflicting Falsehoods like:


(My Team Slate Hijackers) “We’ve done a tremendous amount for affordable housing”  i.e. having “displaced – evicted 100’s and 100’s” from our city who can no longer afford my “lyin’ eyes” gentrified housing!  While “turning his back” on our unhealthy 0.3% vacancy rate keeping housing costs out of reach for far too many.  Then in the same NSN March 16th interview has the audacity to assert: “Maybe we can look at housing people as a priority as opposed to housing our cars.”  #MussattoDisconnect

This coming from a seemingly proverbial chronic hypocrite who IF EVER: “walks'” or “peddles” his bike to work.  Choosing instead to WTF: drive the “few blocks to work” behind the wheel of his Lexus SUV on the taxpayers’ dollar – holding down one of the highest car allowances” in the lower mainland!  #DMWlegacy

And lest we forget under mayor Mussatto’s legacy reign of density terror how the livability of our city has DROPPED to #72 – “Best Places to Live in Canada 2017.”  Noteworthy: Our fellow North Shore cities are significantly ranked higherDNVC ranked 20th and West Vancouver in 25th place!   #cnvSOL  http://www.moneysense.ca/canadas-best-places-to-live-create-your-own-ranking/
