I received a link to a number of individual video clips that covered the entire Centennial Theatre Mayoral Debate from last Monday Night. I wish I had the time to seamlessly pull together all 11 segments of the youtube video into “one.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr3ubV1QcrM&list=PLx1Dq5V7CWIu455QI0pKbtGLY-IsgiASw
…But I am running out of time with a number of freelance projects to cross-off my list before surrendering my North Vancouver residency in just nine days – yikes. #SustainableSeniorHorizons – here I come.
The first video features all 5 mayoral candidates putting their best foot forward announcing why they should be our next mayor. I did a little intro clean up editing on each wannabe mayor candidate that should not diminish or take away any mayoral candidate’s tenor… But I did however superimpose a couple captions over Councillors Buchanan and Clark video frames as the intent of my blog since day one has always been to expose just how convoluting, disconnected and polarized our city politics has sorely become under our mayor’s “4 to 3” Team Slate and by our other three horse trading City Councillors!
My taken aback moment was when the debate turned to the question (paraphrasing) “is there too much density in our city” and WTF: hearing Councillor Buchanan affirm: “I’m comfortable with where we are in the density that we put in and where we put it.”
Does this not suspect one to believe the Darwin Construction’s 850+ unit unprecedented twin towers horse trading takeover of the Harry Jerome Lands whereby Buchanan did not vote in favour was nothing more than a two step con job. Knowing full-well her fellow Team Slate non city resident Holly Back was going to tip the scales in favour of the project thus letting herself and our unscrupulous mayor off the hook. #despicables #Vote4ChangeOct20 #TimeToChangeCourse
