It has been a year of en masse density and traffic travesty
Thanks in part to Mayor Mussatto and his Team Slate Councillors:
Buchanan, Keating, Back… a city having forsaken its glory
Having SOLD its soul to vulturine invested developers.
My sources are not always right on target but I still trust them over anything written in the NSNews. My apologizes as now the question is: who in the hell besides “double donor dipping” Darwin Properties is going to be there since MOST city residents will STILL be commuting, congested in homeward bound traffic.
CBC Vancouver Municipal Affairs reporter Justin McElroy writes: “Is there hope for a North Shore transportation solution anytime soon?” While of course not, and not for decades thanks to the likes of our mayor and his controlling Team Slate City Council Hijackers Buchanan, Keating, Back.
I was taken aback by bullshitter Mussatto’s falsehood quip: “We’re trying to do work to find out what’s really going on with the traffic, what’s causing that, and we want to address solutions in a proper way.” Again BULLSHIT, he knows EXACTLY what has caused our traffic woes – his maniacal density push by autocratically strong-arming density levels beyond 2014 Regional Growth Strategy Levels and constructing FAILING $20+ million bike lanes! The essentials on which his legacy will forever and justifiably be judged.
And tonight there is a Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands Open House starting conveniently at 5:30 (no time for dinner having just been caught up in commuter gridlocked traffic). It is to be held at the North Vancouver School District Mountain View room on 2121 Lonsdale Ave. North Van…
From my POV it would be best if residents simply stayed away and enjoyed a family dinner at home or night out because it is “already a done deal” and the drawings DO NOT OFFER SOCIAL HOUSING. And the developer will be deflecting all “unforeseen, not our problem,” increased traffic congestion and guaranteed overcrowded busing. Any resident input much like Hollyburn’s Marlborough 3 apartment complex now under construction and about to bottleneck traffic along Lonsdale and 13 St. will be graciously received with disingenuous deaf ears! Remember Darwin Properties INVESTED not once but TWICE into the willing hostage takeover of our mayor’s 2014 campaign. #CNVSOL
Our CNV mayor has no shame nor does his Team Slate hijacking lackeys. These Despicables are down to their LAST 320 weekdays and 90 weekends holding office. And until then they will be mercilessly downgrading and screwing our city into en masse density annihilation! #CNVdensityAnnilation

The United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities is today December 3rd. And will our inglorious mayor and surrogate to wannabe night-mayor Linda Buchanan who is also our city councillor “rep” on our North Shore Disabled Persons Board celebrate this day? Why of course on a ferris wheel and NOT in a wheel chair.
The theme for this year’s 2017 International Day of People with Disability is: “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all”. The overarching principle of this theme is to ‘leave no one behind’ and empowers people with disability to be active contributors of society.
In honour of this prodigious day I self-proclaim this week as “CNV International Disability Week.” I urge everyone to acknowledge and respect how these men, women and children cope and courageously look beyond their physical disabilities we take for granted. #HireHandicap
At last Monday night’s city council meeting the mayor was whining and crying foul how he and his team slate councillors can’t get respect during the Public Input Period… Does the word HYPOCRITE ever come to mind Grinch. I couldn’t help but take a second look at a city council meeting on July 17 of this year. And lo and behold our mayor counterblow’s his self proclaimed righteousness with his own out of order, unruly retort, chuckling “ha, welcome to North Van”.
A few minutes prior, look closely, camera right at councillor Keating aka BC NDP President waving goodbye to Mr. Wilkinson having been ordered out of chambers by flustered and unhinged Mussatto. The Wilkinson’s were quite upset over the fact they never had been told about the city’s complicit bowling alley gaffe, having bought a condo in the Onni CentreView Camel-not complex. And Premier John Horgan, you must be so damn proud of your party’s contemptible NDP President.
…If you dare take a 2 hour flashback at that night’s fight card from the 3:32 hour/minute mark onward, listen closely to the remarks made by the Wilkinson’s at the Bowling Alley Public Hearing and by the mayor’s large campaign donor Onni and of course Mussatto’s Team Slate Despicable’s approving the Onni Bowling Alley from the July 17 video. You may like the Wilkinson’s and so many other concerned residents realize why they won’t be voting for wannabe mayor Buchanan and Councillor Back on election day October 20, 2018. http://www.cnv.org/your-government/council-meetings/2017-meetings/council-videos
The Tyee on Nov. 20 featured an article by Jessica Barrett: “Five Policies That Would Have Helped Me Stay in Vancouver” All polices take ready aim – firing solutions to our GVR housing crisis. But unfortunately #4 has very LITTLE CHANCE of ever seeing daylight, especially here in our city until after October 20, 2018 in 46 weeks and 5 days from now – a time eternity for so many of us CNVites. https://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2017/11/20/Policies-To-Help-Afford-Vancouver/?utm_source=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=201117
And right on cue Grinch’s #1 pro mayor NSNews last Friday conveniently did what it does best i.e. babble on and on about our city’s indebtedness to Density Darrell’s developer pal and campaign double-dipping investor Darwin Properties. Up-selling sugarcoated collusion while ignoring the adverse effects in having MORE deconstruction, lane closures, gridlocked traffic, further transit overcrowding, air and noise pollution’s and the pillaging of even more of our city’s depleting green spaces at the expense of a mayor’s vainglorious failing legacy. #MussattoDMW http://www.nsnews.com/news/harry-jerome-neighbourhoods-lands-envisioned-1.23103770
