Tonight’s city council meeting should again not be any different from any previous city council meeting when it comes to “stacking the deck” in favour of their developer pals and appropriating large sums of taxpayers’ cash to their campaign donor buds to Mussatto’s Team Slate closing down 26 St. West at Lonsdale based on a sham Pezzente traffic study “contradicting” ICBC’s legitimate traffic study report.
The majority of 26 St. neighbourhood did not favour the oversized foot print for the new development or want to lose their green space or street access to Lonsdale. But when you are just a taxpaying resident and not a Mussatto campaign investor the odds will never ever be in your favour… But tonight’s road closure doesn’t stop here. They also want to create a bylaw to: close and remove highway dedication off 100 Block East 22nd Street. #UpperLonsdaleUnite #Vote4ChangeOct20
But there is a twilight of good news in tonight’s meeting… a Notice of Motion by wannabe mayor Rod Clark wants the city to endorse the recommendation of the BC Rental Housing Task Force: that the maximum rental increase be cut from inflation plus 2% to inflation only, and that the automatic 2% increase be eliminated.
