Who should our new City Council be listening to when it comes to CNV zoning… its citizens …developers …city planners or their own sanctimonious egos?


One thing that has been quite apparent over the last 4 years during mayor Mussatto’s last hurrah reign in density terror is just how DELIBERATELY DISCONNECTED the mayor, his Team Slate Councillors and all aboard Horse Trading City Councillors have become.  Willing to POPULATE our city beyond the wellness of our Regional Strategy Growth Targets and IGNORING our inner city restrictive INFRASTRUCTURE CAPABILITIES.

There will be NO SUSTAINABLE RELIEF from our current NDP MLA MA Transit Board for at least a decade.  All that is being offered by MLA Ma’s INSTPP, TransLink and our current mayor and city council is WTF: MICROMANAGING aka MISTPP-ing its residents lifestyle and commuting habits. i.e. “You will love living in our new inflated cookie cutter condos, not being able to find residential or commercial street parking while most small retail shops wont be able to find or maintain staff because of its city’s UNAFFORDABILITY.  A city whereby most resident families must make at least $100K in order to afford its livability amidst it “new norm” in:  Deconstructing heritage neighbourhoods, displacing hundreds of low-income renters while millennial families exit from our shore to years & years & years and even more years of lane closures and neverending construction zones!” #CNVunlivable  #Vote4ChangeOct20  #Enough!

And I am not the only one who feels this way – support is growing… checkout District’s Peter Teevan POV. #micromanaging  #MISTPP https://www.theglobalcanadian.com/dnv-transportation-plan-treats-citizens-like-blight-community/

 

Your Orchestrated Jig is up City Council Despicables!


What happened at last Monday night’s farcical Public Hearing “in how” double dipping donor Darwin Construction got their rezoning bylaws fornicated was from my POV…  Nothing short of being a well staged, orchestrated, surreptitious ruse!  At the time I could not voice what I thought was about to go down during this “inside job public hearing” having been declared out of order by the mayor…  Fair enough, but this is my blog in which the mayor and or any city councillor has absolutely no out of order jurisdiction.

But first… Mr. Keating when I referred to Councillor Buchanan “in kind” as dear I did so without any intentional disrespectful manner.  Unlike your seemingly “silent support” of our mayor’s misogynist “camel toe” remarks during 2017’s final city council meeting.  Your BC NDP Party must be so damn proud of your apparent anti #metoo disposition.

With that out of the way let’s pretend and only pretend we are about to enter a NVCHall Twilight Zone “Staged Production”.

ACT 1:  Entering from stage right are 3 civic charlatans will name Bookham, Keating along with a Grinch-like mayor all deciding not to run in the upcoming city election.  Huddled over on stage left are city council jesters: virtual Bell, surly Clark, carpetbagger Back and wannabe night-mayor Buchanan.  #dispictables

ACT 2:  Finding ourselves trapped within this uneasy dimension the plot unravels.  Stage Right, the mayor dressed in his Emperor’s Clothing is acting like he is not supporting his buddies over at Darwin Deconstruct.  Keating will play the lead role as the detailing Devil and Bookham in contrast will be wondering aimlessly around down stage looking for her Olympic sized pool and Curling Rink.  #dazed&confused

Entering from Stage Left is surly Clark harping & barking over how his 3 to maybe 4 year Moody Villa rebuild is WTF: almost on the same scale as the proposed 8 to 10 year density congested, traffic & parking bedlam Darwin twin towering deconstruct that has attached to its meaty hip bone his damn proposed Titanic SportsPlex – really!  #EnoughBullshit

Councillor virtual Bell will try and use a little misdirection hoping you will believe him when he concocts a spell whereby there will only be “800 people in all of Darwin’s proposed 800 units.”  #hocuspocus

Wannabe night-mayor Buchanan will reenact one of her typical “covert roles” pretending to oppose both preordained coupled projects.  #disingenuous  As we now enter…

ACT 3:  Imposters Buchanan, Keating & mayor Grinch “KNOW” how their devoted Team Slate carpetbagger Back will play-out her final scene…  i.e. In FAVOUR of Darwin’s fornicating 30 & 26 storey “hair”-raising project.  Thereby surreptitiously “sheltering” wannabe mayor Buchanan from the angry city mob voters against either or both projects on October 20th.  And it also gives Grinch a free ticket out of “density jail” so he doesn’t look like he is indebted to his double dipping donor Darwin Deconstruct!  #MussattoTeamSlateDouble-Cross   #Vote4ChangeOctober20

ACT 4:  We escape back into our 3rd dimensional world left wondering IF the deceptive and immorally compassed comedy tragedy we just witnessed could ever play out here in our real world corrupt city council honouring 21st Century Density Horse Trading… hmm.

And of course The District  Trojan Crier/NSNews coverage so far has yet to figure out the real telltale plot behind Monday Night’s “clandestine Harry Jerome Lands Public Hearing.”   #readTheGlobalCanadian

In just 37 weeks Mayor Mussatto will be leaving office on a very FULL stomach.


Finally there is a non partisan North Shore newspaper that is listening to the concerns of residents – kudos to The Global Canadian.  And no I am not on their payroll, am just relieved to see an alternative tabloid publication encouraging and “not limiting public input.”

Even my once next door neighbour for many years Fiona Walsh now has an open resource to voice her concerns, pointing out how the CNV population is seemingly out of control, with neighbourhoods suffering from traffic congestion, overcrowded schools, and unaffordable housing.  (The Global Canadian: page 6 “Change We Want)

And if our overall North Shore population is shrinking as wannabe mayor councillor Buchanan wants us to believe.  It would and could be for reasons like:  The many Mussatto Team Slate heralded demo-rental-evictions, unaffordable housing for far too many seniors, single parents, fixed and low income earners.  And young couples like my tenant neighbours wanting MORE than just a cookie cutter existence having just bought an affordable home in Abbotsford.  Lost forever to our city will be their much needed talents in nursing and construction.  

From my POV:  those that can afford our gentrified uppity housing prices are NOT BLUE COLLAR WORKERS.  The very backbone to our city’s wellness and survival.  #CNVSOL

Mirror, mirror on the wall how deep is the mayor into his own falsehoods and does he truly believe we are that gullible.


Onni’s Lucky camel as in “as luck would have it” is once again getting caught up in controversy this time by our mayor’s “insistence” in blaming the bronze one hump Dromedary statue [wishing it was a historical correct Lucy the two hump Bactrian camel] as why he should be excused from his derogatory remarks comparing tight fitting women’s clothing in the vulva area as elephant feet er camel toe  #MeToo

A controversy much like his ‘aggressive agenda warning’ as he was shutting down city council chambers for 2017.  Tonight’s Monday Night Fight Card is tame, the calm before the storm with only one aggressive and contentious agenda issue.  Our mayor and most of city council sucking up to HUB’s request to adapt the Crosswalk Use by Cyclists and Street Occupancy Permits Bylaw: “elephant feet strips” or as our mayor likes to point out are interchangeable, they’re like camel toes.


How is it that the mayor can so adamantly declare ignorance in not ever knowing the meaning of ‘camel toes’ as reported in the The Global Canadian Newspaper.  Why didn’t he use the same comparison referring to them as crosswalk camel feet ?  Has he not been around the Onni camel long enough to realize this “life-like” camel does not have toes rather hooves!  You decide from this clip I grabbed from last Dec. 11th meeting in question picturing the mayor laughing at his own self gratifying vulgar remarks.  And joining in is smilin’ CAO Ken Tollstam and looking down at her notes seemingly amused by the mayor’s reference is City Clerk Karla Graham.

WARNING the following video insert graphic may be offensive to some and have self-rated it ‘R’ and is not intended to be offensive to women.  Rather only to depict just how disingenuous our mayor is in wanting us to “believe” he thinks camel’s have toes and not hoof feet.

There is no City Council Meeting Tonight… we should all be thankful! No chance of any new density projects to be proposed or realized..


Tonight we will not have to worry about any new development proposals or 2nd or 3rd readings further suffocating our current 2040 density levels.  A city council’s stubbornness to only meet on Mondays having now been MIA for “18 weeks” so far in 2017.

Signifying our city’s latest EMBARRASSMENT whereby “Lady” a “two hump camel” used during the mid 1800’s mining gold rush has been bronzed and disfigured …the sculptor, Myfanwy MacLeod decided to lose one of its hump’s in the name of artistic license – eagerly abstaining from “historical facts” in favour being artistically arrogant.  Defying facts much like our mayor and his 3 city council stooges bought and paid by Onni who in their “own words:” inscribed on the plaque next to this defecation.  Insisting this erroneous bronze “Syrian camel” is “in fact  a “facsimile of a camel named Lucky used during the interior BC Gold Rush.”  This only further denotes how controversial and disconnected our despotic mayor and his Team Council Hijackers have succumbed – unable to distinguish fact from fiction.

Camel Lucky will become a metamorphic albatross for any of the mayor’s team buffoons running for mayor or city council next year on October 20, 2018.   #CamelArrogance  #CamelHeresy  #CamelControversy


And just could not resist expressing my artistic license this Thanksgiving Day.
