“I’m a zit get it” Planning Dir Epp thinks he can OVERRIDE City Councils majority decision PROHIBITING GAMING FACILITIES by tonight RECOMMENDING the city Adopts Zoning Amendments to Clarify that “Gaming could be Permitted through (Neighbourhood) Site-Specific Zoning.” His Animal House antics should be grounds for dismissal!


When you have an upstart OCP Director of Planning willing to OVERTURN and IGNORE city council decisive stay in prohibiting gaming facilities in all neighbourhoods!  Proves just how underhanded our mayor and city planning department have all become.  Undermining our community neighbourhoods calling them callously “site specific”.  #thejigisup

We have 3 city councillors: “neighbourhood site specific” Buchanan, Back, Keating and the mayor tied to a financially strapped double dipping donor Darwin Properties project that will ultimately destroy and up-heave a neighbourhood with EIGHT YEARS of construction!  And we have 3 city councillors: Bookham, Bell and Clark proposing to spend over $160 million on a MegaRecDome with insufficient monies in their HJ coffers!

There isn’t one financial institution in the world that would finance either one of these projects – otherwise they would have.  This squandering of taxpayers money has to stop, but how I have no idea unless there is a mass peoples revolt which I am in no way thwarting, yet.  A triple whammy right smack dab in the face of every city taxpayer!  Perhaps the only way to stop this crafted density madness is by NOT RE-ELECTING any of these city councillors in October.  #OustAllCityCouncillors

And then with a new hopefully untainted city council in place (and new city planning director) perhaps roadblocks can be set up making these projects nonviable or at least abbreviated as they will both be in very early financially unsecured stages of development. 

First and foremost after the new city council has been elected, it should consider putting these projects in escrow, suspending our OCP – and maybe doing a little city planning house cleaning… The sale of cannabis is inevitable but the city’s tax revenue share will not be enough to finance one never mind both projects financial shortcomings.

And this is where the mayor’s largest gaming donor, Tom Nellis comes out from behind the greased curtain and embraces the mayor and his three despicable indebted team slate councillors and count me in: Councillors Bookham, Clark and Bell. “I knew I could count on you all to do whatever it would take in order to build my casino. …moo-waah” #KissOfDeath

TransLink’s Second Phase Expansion SHUNS North Shore!


Translink feels all we need “to hold us over” on yonder North Shore is a couple more buses and one more scheduled seabus during peak hours…. sounds fair if you live in Surrey or looking for a new rail transit extension from Broadway to UBC.  #ScrewNorthShore

NOW that we know the North Shore is not a priority with the Translink brass and with traffic and commuter congestion at an all time precedent high.  Our transportation problems can only IMPLODE then EXPLODE since Translink will not be seriously addressing our dire transportation issues until MAYBE Phase 3 – ten years from now! 

Our North Shore cities (especially CNV) must STOP all new “proposed” high rise development like: Darwin’s HJ Lands as we now know is SHORT ON CASH and “is going to take WTF 8+ years to complete!”  A project strongly opposed during the last Town Hall Meeting.  A development in total disregard to OCP zoning height restrictions and will further handicap our traffic woes, increase street parking shortages and further contribute to our city bus overloads – all in the name of North Van Fornication.

Same holds true re: $160+ million HJ MegaDome that will take 3+ YEARS to complete and will be SHARING 23rd Street with Darwin’s en masse development!  #RenovateHarryJeromeRecCentre  #ItCanBeDone

We are running low on green spaces, trapped in traffic gridlock all day amidst TransLink shortcomings!  #NoNorthShoreReliefInsight

We are in a transportation crisis on the North Shore – Translink and our NDP parliamentary secretary responsible for TransLink MLA Ma seemingly could care less… and the same can be said about our infamous mayor & his subordinate city planners!  The Translink Phase Two Investment Plan has very little to offer in the way of transportation relief on the North Shore!  #NothingWillChange  #NorthShoreSOL
