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?

Mayor Mussatto will be rescinding his inconvenient Metro Van Board’s One Shot Pension vote while DNV mayor Walton’s tardy letter brings down the curtain looking for WTF: Continued amalgamation er reunification talks!


Oh what a night it was, no surprises when it came to frivolously tossing taxpayers money on this and that but at least council did not include money for a new kitchen sink… maybe next week.  #cnvSOL

Councillor Clark’s motion to write to the Metro Vancouver Board expressing strong opposition repealing any salary increase and pension bonus was of course and certainly not to my surprise intercepted by one of Mussatto’s perilous team hijacker’s councillor Keating.  Deliberately wanting to divide his motion into two parcels.  One repealing the one time, pension retro gift and the other the 15% salary – fed tax offset that will not begin until next year’s lower mainland mayors and councillors are elected.  Thus offering Mussatto a much needed saving grace after giving himself an under wraps mayors’ council raise and one time retirement bonus under the guise of a DELIBERATE UNRECORDED VOTE.

Noteworthy: there was a prior Metro Van Board itemized agenda made available to the public and media.  A point councillor and wannabe mayor Buchanan resonated in supporting the mayor’s account of its council’s procedural protocol regarding agenda items.  Of course Buchanan did not mention the mayors unwillingness not to record “his vote.”  Perhaps a precursor in just how “opaque and underhanded” Linda Buchanan will be if elected mayor in 7 months time.   #disingenuous

Then with one foot out the door a new agenda item materialized from CEO Tollstom bringing forward a lover’s letter from outgoing confederate District of Vancouver mayor Walton wanting to reopen amalgamation er reunification conversations!  Profoundly mystifying EVERY COUNCILLOR whom each had serious concerns, listing the many negative impacts it would have on their city!  It was reiterated over and over by a number of councillors that City Council has already thoroughly DEFEATED a DNVC carbon copy motion in 2016.  Having said all that a “mayor Mussatto” 4 to 3 split decision on two fronts will carry it – cha-ching back to city staff and council – UNBELIEVABLE!  More on this in Friday’s “Get Stuffed Video”.. first things first.
