The intent of my editorial cartoon blog is to bring awareness i.e. getting citizens more engaged in local city politics. Of course not everyone will agree with my POV in just how convoluting, disconnected and polarized our city politics has sorely succumbed under our mayor’s “4 to 3” Team Slate tyrannical takeover of city hall. City Hall is no longer “the voice of the people, rather the compliant bought and paid voice of our mayor’s developer pals.”
Our city has now surpassed 2041 Regional Growth Strategy Targets, left choking in traffic/transit congestion and shrinking street parking. The welfare of CNV is under siege by “vulture developers and undermined by poor city planning.” Making it impossible for many seniors, artists, low and fixed income earners and Millennial families that are UNABLE to afford our gentrifying shortcomings. A city “short changing” our local businesses who can’t find/keep quantitative part-time workers because of our high cost of rental housing. But we do have $20+ million Black Chain bike lanes connecting our four Green Necklace Parks used by less than 2% willing to cycle daily to work!

My blog will also act as a launching pad in my running for city council on October 20, 2018. More: http://www.theglobalcanadian.com/cartoonist-wants-brush-power/
Welcome to our city: where reality is not always what is deemed.
