TransLink’s Second Phase Expansion SHUNS North Shore!


Translink feels all we need “to hold us over” on yonder North Shore is a couple more buses and one more scheduled seabus during peak hours…. sounds fair if you live in Surrey or looking for a new rail transit extension from Broadway to UBC.  #ScrewNorthShore

NOW that we know the North Shore is not a priority with the Translink brass and with traffic and commuter congestion at an all time precedent high.  Our transportation problems can only IMPLODE then EXPLODE since Translink will not be seriously addressing our dire transportation issues until MAYBE Phase 3 – ten years from now! 

Our North Shore cities (especially CNV) must STOP all new “proposed” high rise development like: Darwin’s HJ Lands as we now know is SHORT ON CASH and “is going to take WTF 8+ years to complete!”  A project strongly opposed during the last Town Hall Meeting.  A development in total disregard to OCP zoning height restrictions and will further handicap our traffic woes, increase street parking shortages and further contribute to our city bus overloads – all in the name of North Van Fornication.

Same holds true re: $160+ million HJ MegaDome that will take 3+ YEARS to complete and will be SHARING 23rd Street with Darwin’s en masse development!  #RenovateHarryJeromeRecCentre  #ItCanBeDone

We are running low on green spaces, trapped in traffic gridlock all day amidst TransLink shortcomings!  #NoNorthShoreReliefInsight

We are in a transportation crisis on the North Shore – Translink and our NDP parliamentary secretary responsible for TransLink MLA Ma seemingly could care less… and the same can be said about our infamous mayor & his subordinate city planners!  The Translink Phase Two Investment Plan has very little to offer in the way of transportation relief on the North Shore!  #NothingWillChange  #NorthShoreSOL

ICBC North Shore HQ: Truth Be Known


The NSNews release of the precarious financial state of ICBC’s HQ, also and just as importantly revealed just how many of its employees do not “live and work” within our restricted city limits.  A Corporate exec and a few managers I know also prefer not to live in our prohibitive priced congested concrete jungle.  Our mayor’s towering impulsive density mania is having an adverse and irreversible effect raising the bar in who can and who cannot afford to “live and work” in a city fixated in high-rise fornication.  A city controlled by a psycho-ling path Grinch and his 3 proverbial beholden team city councillors

Vancouver Metro Front Page this morning: “ICBC rates to jump” Now I see the NDP via the Attorney General are about to hike insurance premiums to a minimum 6.4% averaging out to about 8% or $130 MORE a year – thanks to Clark’s shady wheelin’ n dealin’ during her governing years!
