A majority of our “we know what is best sanctimonious City Councillors” once again do not and will not support the majority of residents AGAINST any proposed project regardless of its scope in either its front or backyard.
Monday Night’s Public Hearing fiasco lived up to this city council’s over-righteousness and in turn favoured for the good of their legacies and North Shore residents AHEAD of the concerns of the neighbourhood most effected by these en masse dueling developments that should NEVER HAVE BEEN INTERTWINED; but that is not how our sitting council likes to mandate its underhanded, inane 21st Century horse trading agendum. #HarryJeromeResidentsSOL
And don’t get too worked up over the fact wannabe mayor Buchanan, councillor Keating and the mayor voted against the unprecedented 30/26 storey HJ rezoning. Their reasons for nay-ing did not ever once cite the fact that a 1,000+ submitted petition against these projects was ever a good enough, valid reason to vote against. (more in Friday’s blog)
But at least now you know which councillors over its four year term haven’t been supporting community concerns regarding too much density or the wrong kind of density… EVERY MEMBER of our city council is now on record in having STOPPED LISTENING to too many city residents!
On October 20th “let’s not get fooled again”… play/skip to the very end.
The feature bout from last Monday Night’s fight card was reinforcing the need for a public town hall meeting featuring this year’s Main Event: Building a new Harry Jerome Sports Enchilada that no other North Shore city would dare venture and all on the backs of a neighbourhood who have overwhelming been against this “Sports” not ‘Community’ Rec Centre AND chained to its hip is an 8 year crushing towering OCP rezoning en masse Mussatto donor development!
The odds on favourite i.e. hitting below the money belt favours a new
Community “Sporting” Harry Jerome mega structure and an en masse Darwin twin towering development i.e. basically shitting on the neighbourhood residents. Screw you NIMBY’s, senior lawn bowlers and Norseman Park – skateboard lovers. We (Back, Bell, Bookham, Clark) can get re-elected without your damn NIMBY support on October 20th!
Here are just a few choice video clips I pulled from last Monday’s city council meeting dealing with the new proposed HJ ‘Sports Centre’ & Darwin Lands verses the city’s neighbourhood from each councillor. Which I am sure all will be reiterating at the June 18th Public Hearing… Even our mayor is on record (District ★ Trojan Crier aka NSN) saying: you don’t buy the house and then figure out how to pay for it.
First up is Councillor Keating’s POV – pulling back the curtains!
Then along comes Councillors Bell and Back…
Wrapping up Councillors Buchanan, Bookham and Clark…
March 12th CNV council meeting keeps on giving and giving and giving! It was a night “pot” full of innuendos, unlikelihood’s and pro development NIMBY deconstructs. In other words a typical city council meeting.
Even last Friday’s NSNews is still chronicling the nocturnal musings from that infamous council meeting headlining BC NDP President ‘Moneybags’ Keating’s proverbial insight in how to give birth to the burgeoning $210 million “plus” for a new Harry Jerome Rec Centre.
According to Keating all that is required is getting “high” from pot sales and gambling away family security wellness, i.e. attracting pathological gambling – risking bankruptcy and bad debts. Odds only a habitual high roller quenches or how an alien money laundering gang can illegally profit. #casinoPlebiscite
“From a local economic impact perspective, casinos don’t encourage non-gaming businesses to open nearby, because the people who most often visit casinos do not wander out to visit other shops and businesses. A casino is designed to be an all-absorbing environment that does not release its customers until they have exhausted their money. And nearby neighbourhoods are more susceptible to be negatively infected and socially impacted.” #BetTheHouse
Is this what we want councillors… to build a new “family” rec centre on the backs of drug and gambling dependencies. #HarryJeromePlebiscite
