Out of the 4 to 5 or will it be 6 running for mayor two are City Slicker Councillors coveting more density in just 113 days – 16 weeks!


Note: To be fair Councillor Clark has not made his mayoral candidacy official.  Maybe he is waiting to see just how much feeler support there is before tossing his “horse trading stetson” into the mayoral ring.  If Councillor Clark is running for mayor he and Buchanan would be running from a parallel kindred slate coveting more and more DENSITY continuing to turn their backs on NIMBY’s.  #enoughDensty

Councillor Buchanan has voted in favour of EVERY new highrise except for her recent mayoral campaign’s ‘the fix is in’ new Harry Jerome Mega Sports Complex allowing Darwin’s takeover of the existing HJ Lands.  And lest we forget IGNORING EVERY neighbourhood petition and helping to make a mockery out of every highrise public hearing.  Forever voting against resident concerns like Hollyburn’s new apartment building, allowing them to buy at below market value our city hall’s hovering density air in order to increase the height of “her” Hollyburn donor’s 13th & Lonsdale Marlborough 3 Commercial Apartment highrise from 12 to 17 floors!  #disingenuous

The same can be said about Councillor Clark who is on record for towering “community” horse trading with developers.  Two key huge projects come to mind; Polygon’s new Promenade Lower Lonsdale tower featuring a horse trading swap for extra floors blocking more area condo views in order to get the North Van Museum & Archives “squeezed” into a confined main floor space!  And if you want to epitomize horse trading we need to look no further than the about to be built 32 & 26 towering Darwin project in order to finance his damn $210+ million Titanic MegaDome Sporting Facility having “turned his back”, crapping on the majority of the Harry Jerome Community who are dead against both projects.  #screwNIMBYS

Is either councillor the kind of mayor you want i.e. bound & determined to further entrap our city into further highrise development.  Two infamous city councillors who don’t give a damn about NIMBY concerns having divorced themselves from Regional Growth Strategy Levels surpassing 2041 census.  Promoting Bike to Work Black Necklace lanes used by less than 2% of city residents OVER our city’s dire, unable to keep pace  infrastructures.  While also deliberately limiting residential and commercial street parking at ALL “their” construction & noise polluting sites beholding to “their” heavy equipment vehicles closing off residential street parking & causing constant lane closures…  No, then simply vote for change October 20th.  #weCANdoBetter  #noMoreDensity

Stache Cartoon Editorials Most Viewed for the month of May…


The month of May started off led by our infamous OCP Dir. Mr. Epp telling us which neighbourhoods he would like to put his slot machines instead of where they should surely have gone… This eventually led to the defeat (being an election year) of any gaming establishment coming to town other than our already “many, many BC Lotto booths.”

Not to be outdone, our mayor referencing HJ Lands quipped: “If we can’t put the density here, where else can we put it!”  And yet just last Monday Night at the HJ Lands Public Hearing he inadvertently voted against his double dipping donor Darwin Construction.  Why would density Darrell vote against his density donor brethren?… see Friday’s blog  #scandalous

And then I watched in dismay as all city council members in unison overturned our Canadian and BC Charter of Rights Freedoms in not allowing those wanting a head start running for city council or mayor in being able to erect lawn signs prior or bike rack signs during the “noted city election period.”…  Of course back in 2014 these sign bylaws did not “apply” to mayor Massutto who placed many a “bike rack re-election sign” up and down Lonsdale Ave. during the election period!  #MussattoAboveTheLaw

The unexpected highlight in May was out-of-towner Councillor Back turning against her fellow Team Hijackers in wanting to swell a too close to the sidewalk development into its Victoria Park Neighbourhood.

And with so much unwanted density being thwarted into our neighbourhoods; I could not help but do a little karaoke rewrite blog to the beat of: “I Did It My Way” dedicating it to our “you can never have enough density” mayor.  #Vote4ChangeOctober20  #WeCanDoBetter
