Time for a little Commie Comedy… Are a “few” CNVites hiding behind the auspicious cover of the NVCAA lead by insurrectionist Guy Heywood “joining forces” with District Mayor Walton and his Bassam-vik like Revolutionaries looking for sniff, sniff CNV & DNV reunification from 100 years past.


Insurrection: an act or instance of rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority like: an established (CNV) government!

Sound at all familiar NSCAA – North Vancouver Citizen Action Committee and District Renegades?  In other words bordering on Conspiracy.  i.e. associated groups attempting to bypass the democratic CNV City Council decision making process.  #NSCAAreunificationCoup  #DistrictAbrogators

Maybe this is why Guy Heywood has not announced running for CNV mayoral ’cause he also wants to be the mayor of DNV?  And in the meantime he is anxiously awaiting the results – last day being today – in the NRG Research Group’s online public opinion survey for both District and CNV residents… Has any CNV resident ever heard of this survey, unless that is, you are a member of the Revolutionary NSCAA Guard or follow The North Van District Voices freedom fighter’s blog.

Unfortunately this reunification exploration coup is blatantly BYPASSING and REPUDIATING CNV democratic elected Council’s current opposition on amalgamation, if anything it is creating further DIVISIVENESS!  In order for any chance in the twinning of our two cities would require both existing city councils to come to “in-depth terms” which we know is not going to happen (if ever) according to CNV mayor Mussatto and seemingly most city residents…

So the only way this sponsored DNV Bolshevik survey will have any smack is if and only if it receives 50%+1 from ALL ELIGIBLE CNV VOTERS AND DNV VOTERS!  And folks that just isn’t going to happen.

Kerry Morris running for city mayor contests: the matter needs a detailed examination.  Is he possibly waiting for the “aftermath” results of this intrusive NRG District survey before making up his mind.  This leaves us with OMG pro-density, psycho-lying path Linda Buchanan as the only anti-amalgamation candidate running for CNV mayor on a possible Red October election night – yikes!  #cnvSOL

Wanted for CNV Civic Election, October 20, 2018:
A mayoral candidate without any developer collusion, special interest baggage or amalgamation hysteria (I know a tall order).
A candidate who would be the runaway mayoral favourite!  #unitedWEstand

101 years ago “the Russian Empire” experienced the Bolshevik Revolution giving rise to the “Soviet Union.” Today are we on a much, much lesser scale here on the North Shore about to witness a DNVC Councillor “Bassam-vik Peoples Union” takeover of our “NVC Council Democracy.”


In today’s blog I’m going out on the limb hoping most will see the historic humour and apropos sarcasm in my copy and re-worked NVCV banner.

The North Van City Voices Blog should maybe change (in the short term) their name to the DISTRICT VOICES!  (much like the NSNews should change its name to NS District Rag)  Re: WELCOMING the news the District of North Vancouver is making a new as in – nothing has changed – at amalgamating with the City of North Vancouver.  This from a blog that says it is non-political – doesn’t take sides – really.  A seemingly “pro District blog” supporting power to the (Bolshevik) District City Council over our city council democracy – promoting “anarchy” or is it a District revolution er amalgamation coup!  And with a wanton District amalgamation/revolution on the horizon will we be looking at a plebiscite aka Red October 20th Ballot Box.  #DNVBolshevikRevolution

In the 2014 city elections the only pro amalgamation mayoral candidate was George Pringle and he received less than a thousand votes with mayor Mussatto squeaking out victory over Kerry Morris who was neither for or against.  As one fellow coffee mate gal put it to me recently “is Kerry running as a double agent”.  But in all fairness he further iterated the matter needs a detailed examination which we should do.  But your current “elected city council” insists nothing has changed, so what further detailed examination is necessary when “nothing has changed?”

Also on election night besides Morris and possibly Pringle running for mayor there will be at least two more candidates… “Someone” from the NSCAA as in maybe Guy Heywood who in his archived blog was all for amalgamation thus leaving WTH wannabe mayor Linda Buchanan the only one seemingly opposed to the reunification of the two cities.

Hey little sister city – it’s a nice day to start again… Potential District Coup White Wedding Unplugged Theme Song?

Lest we ever forget… February’s Most Viewed


Looking back – seems such a long time ago – doesn’t it?  Here are according to WordPress my top five most viewed.  Though I could have easily made it a top ten.  My videos seem quite popular, getting lots of air time.  Many as in most are enjoying my gulp, choke caricature of the mayor – edging me to do more which are well in hand aka in the works or storyboarded for this month.

Is Density Remorse on the Horizon… What Goes Up…


Back in the middle of last November the NSN did what I thought was a poignant “Menu” article on our housing crisis and the effects it is having on our overall social wellness and unaffordability.  http://www.nsnews.com/opinion/editorial/editorial-what-goes-up-1.23101123

And after watching last Monday Night’s city council meeting lasting only 2 1/2 hrs.   I could not help but sense how the aforementioned NSN article since its posting nothing as in ABSOLUTELY NOTHING has changed.  The mindset at city hall continues to remain oblivious, unyielding, thirsting for more and more development superseding 2041 density levels.  And lest we forget their hyperbolic contention – blaming our provincial and federal governments for not being able to kept pace with their neverending apocalyptic push beyond 2041-plus density/population levels!

A city hall turning a blind eye on its city’s social and sustainable wellness; like to date unwilling to offer REAL AFFORDABLE low income housing – 10/10/10 is a Heartless Joke  when current market rental rates are already over $2,000 for a two bedroom!

And of course in our city it is not hard to trip over our inept city engineers who have turned a blind’s eye on our sidewalk’s “walkability”.  Had this been a bike path…

Such is the undermining ineptness and disconnect that is consuming, eroding and diminishing our skilled work force and loss buying power generated by our seniors, low income and young families.  A city unaware its future is today on life-support with no mythical saviour in sight… unless you believe in mystical screensavers or this inglorious city slicker.  #CNVSOL

“There are men running governments who shouldn’t be allowed to play with matches” – Will Rogers

UBCM Convention highlighted just how difficult it is for mayors and city councillors to willingly surrender TAINTED MONIES.


Well once again the Union of BC Municipalities during last week’s convention were not ready nor willing to concert a majority of its members eradicating corporate and union campaign money when it comes to their 2018 re-elections err city elections.  And this bullshit argument that “this would certainly be an advantage to incumbents that people seeking a seat on council simply don’t enjoy”  Really, in small towns and villages town hall meetings should suffice.  But in every lower mainland city there is an uprising, a frustration surrounding all the unaffordable housing being constructed “at will” by bought and paid for mayors and their bankrolled infected city councillors.  I think voters wont be fooled again by any mayoral or city councillor who is being financed – indebted to a developer, union or corporate “investor.”   #wontBeFooledAgain

Further, any mayor or city councillor who has willingly supported this density-mania Asian invasion like: wannabe night-mayor councillor Buchanan.  Will undoubtedly find themselves at the wrong end of the stick, targets, a bulls-eye for all “inner city” ignored, deprioritized infrastructures, parking deficiencies, traffic and transit congestion and gridlock! “Inner city density issues they created – not the province or TransLink.” … All the money in the world is not going to be enough to save their asses.  #AssButtKicking

And I see on tonight’s agenda fight card Councillor Clark is proposing: ‘Below Market Rental Units in Multi-Family Developments’.   Wanting the City to provide a minimum of 20% of units at a 10% below market rate in perpetuity.  Only problem with this is in 2/3 years when these multi-housing projects are completed market rental rates will be in the neighbourhood of $2,500 to $3,000+.  So how in the hell will our city’s 47% be able to afford $2,000 to $2,700 a month rent is beyond my cognizance.  #NorthShoreHomelessFiguresUp
