“The people have spoken”… well actually NSN publisher Kvarnstrom only a few people weighed in on your Readers Choice Awards. And when it came to choosing a favourite North Shore mayor I and others would like to see the beef, “the ballots,” a breakdown in how many out of 5,500 actually did vote for a mayor. i.e. How many of the supposed 5,5oo cast ballots were there for each NS mayor and keep in mind DNVC has a much larger population. I guess DNVCites dislike their mayor more than I thought, or did they like myself and others frankly could not elect a favourite mayor from your NSN Readers Choice Awards… And why did you choose a very outdated waterfront/skyline at the bottom of your pg. 4 The People Have Spoken babble – did it have to meet mayor Mussatto’s approval?
StatCan data shows overall North Shore Tri-City population in 2016 at 181,506! And for conservative argument sake let’s bring down that number to anyone aged 18 and over to 100,00-ish potential voters. And ignoring the fact that both the larger papa bear DNVC and mama bear CNV populations are going through since the end of 2017 exponential and unprecedented growth! http://www.nsnews.com/news/statcan-data-shows-north-shore-population-slightly-up-1.9771546
The real winners in the Readers Choice Awards was of course NSNews MILKING WINNERS in placing quarter, half to full page ads in the their paper: “CHA-CHING!”
WARNING: Anti high density/commuter burdened voter’s beware come October 20th! For the votes the mayor received in this dubiously bias readers poll highlights just how aggressive and determined local city staffers, HUB cyclists and socialites are in their support in wanting wannabe councillor Buchanan to be their next psycho-ling, pro density mayor, currently hiding under the mayor’s inglorious coattail.
The good news in all this is the NSN Willy Wanka
Choice Awards did not offer the obvious 4th choice in the favourite mayoral category: “none of the above” which would have been an overwhelming first choice for most on the North Shore. #NoneOfTheAbove #WillyWankaAwards
