Tonight’s mayoral candidate opening act will no doubt feature uncanny performances from Councillor’s Buchanan and Clark as they camouflage and or misconstrue their on the record failing pro development math.
Horsetrader Clark will no doubt voice: For I am the one who introduced the city’s 10/10/10 renter policy for all new rental housing starts… The only obvious sink hole in this approach though admirable; is the fact new rental market housing costs for a two or three bedroom family rental unit are now in excess of 2 to 3 thousand smackaroos and will continue to be for many a year hereafter. It doesn’t matter how you slice and dice it Clark your 10% off $2K & $3+K will not cut it. They will be still too UNAFFORDABLE and UNSUSTAINABLE for far too many young families, seniors and those on fixed incomes and thus will only further cloud CNV’s social and economic wellness. #Vote4ChangeOctober20
Wannabe night-mayor Buchanan on the other hand wants our “new norm” development levels to “remain on course” within the loosey goosey forever amended pro development toothless OCP guidelines. Thereby repudiating any and all Regional Strategy Targets now surpassing 2041 densification levels. She is also fostering all purpose-built rental housing by how: RENOVICTING and DISPLACING even more low income residents from their apartment buildings and thereby further shrinking the social and economic wellness of this city. #timeToChangeCourse
CNV MAYORAL CANDIDATES’ MEETING:
TONIGHT 7-9 PM CENTENNIAL THEATRE 2300 LONSDALE AVE.
Today’s editorial cartoon rewind is a combination of three blogs from last October’s trashing of Onni’s Lucy bronze camel during the Thanksgiving long weekend. And to make matters worse, shortly thereafter Onni’s henchmen verbally accused an innocent senior (Bryan May) in a handicap scooter passing by as the leader of the pack behind the deification of their precious fake art bronze camel. #OnniHenchmen
Adjacent to the disfigured bronze camel statue there is a Onni plaque that emphatically argues this is a historically correct example of the camel used during the North Shore mini gold rush. The truth of the matter is it was the hardier “Dromedary two hump camel” used and even this breed did not perform or live up to expectations. #OnniFakeNews
Of course this did not stop wannabe night-mayor Buchanan to state in an NSN interview that this Arabian one hump camel did in fact represent the kind of camel used during the 1858 Fraser River Gold Rush… Buchanan and her supporters wonder why I depict her wearing crazed glasses, this being only one of many reasons. #Vote4ChangeOct20
… And yesterday while enjoying a fresh java at Beans on Lonsdale in walks Horsetrader Clark tossing his campaign biz card on my table, turns and walks away not saying a word… On my way out he was seemingly having a fake news interview where I placed his campaign card on his table saying “I don’t need this.” We then unfortunately ended up in a feisty back and forth exchange where at one point he told me to go back to Ontario – don’t know where that came from. Then told me to drink some more of Kerry Morris’ milk – ignorant to the fact that I am not working for Morris’ campaign. Do you really want a delirious hotheaded density bedfellow as your city’s next mayor?
Meanwhile back at today’s Thanksgiving flashback.
