The Union of BC Municipalities have invited China to host a cocktail reception for civic politicians. More specifically keying in on our lower mainland mayors having raped er invested heavily into our North Shore cities. What are the odds you think that our convolute mayor and his wannabe night-mayor councillor Buchanan will be attending. We know Density Darrell enjoys a good drink or two… and I guess so will nurse Buchanan ascertaining her liquor consumption levels for her upcoming mayoral bid as developers LOVE to intoxicate their backers. #47%proof
And last Monday night of course, of course, Mussatto and his autocrats hijacked Councillor Bells motion curtailing civic election spending limits. Letting Money Bags Keating lead their charge picking apart the motion – which did have a few flaws… But instead of offering IMPROVEMENTS to the motion in UNISON they like always COWARDLY PUNCHED their way out – voting 4 to 3 AGAINST! With councillor witchy Back never really expressing her concerns over the motion. Collusion has no equal among these 4 Despicables... cowards die many times before their deaths.
Maybe it is time for a new city logo, one that truly exemplifies the en mass density mania within our constricted city limits and the dire effect it has had on so many of our longtime heritage families. Longtime residents young and old whom find themselves at the mercy of developers exponentially taking advantage of our infamous mayor’s lust to displace and replace their homes with eventual unaffordable housing. Sabotaging our city’s ability to offer housing for one and all.

Featuring July through December’s NeverEnding Mussatto Team Slate Oligarchy Governance.
December’s featured cartoon was based on a recent conversation our waitress shared with us at a local Italian restaurant. She overheard us talking about how rent was getting out of reach for so many local residents. She wasted no time letting us know her parents were paying $1400 a month for her full basement suit a few blocks away while she was taking courses at Cap U. She also iterated after finishing her studies she was going to look for career opportunities anywhere but on the North Shore as it was just too expensive – it didn’t make sense to her. She grew up in a nice large family home with a big backyard that she missed and knew the only way she could ever see her dream home realized was to live in a small town in the BC interior far away from our North Shore unaffordability!
What our Mayor and his Team Slate Hijackers don’t realize is many of our Millennial’s want a home and not a cookie cutter apartment or as our waitress put it or a concrete condo. Our mayor brags about the new attainable norm for our city is stacked cookie cutter condos and high ticketed apartments that “generational Canadians” are snubbing their noses at saying: “see ya”. Our city is unfortunately attracting residents from Asia and other parts of the world where pricey stacked living conditions is the norm. Most seemingly never expecting an affordable single detached home with a backyard, deck and double car garage.
So NV-ites we will not become a Ghost Town rather a culturally diversified, politically correct city where English will eventually become an optional second language… a consequential reality after fast-tracking density overload down the throats of its seniors, fixed income and blue collar: low to middle income generational families.
Featuring January through June’s NeverEnding Mussatto Team Slate Oligarchy Governance…
…And it is a little ironic that way back last January I felt since having done a lot of illustrations for developers via architects. It was only a matter of time before Hollyburn Properties owning the north and west corner of Lonsdale an 13 Street. (see January’s cartoon) Would knock on the mayor’s backroom door and say something like: hey density lover Mussatto time to shove our over density commercial and apartment development down the throats of those who elected you but did not ever help pay for your re-election campaign like we did. And while we are at it we will STEAL some of your city hall’s FSR – now pay up!
