Our developer donor indebted mayor and “unelected” city clerk, new CEO and in-Epp OCP Planning Director have had more than enough time since July 23rd’s last meeting to over agenda-size and proceed to ramrod their hyper-density agenda through tonight’s expected (yawn) city council 4 1/2 to 5 hour meeting. And don’t expect the 3 remaining city council meetings to show any less mercy when it comes to pushing through the mayor’s Manhattan CityShaping final and Last Testament…. all aboard.
With Councillors Bell, Bookham and Clark on board for the en masse towering of the proposed HJ Lands Darwin Lands in order to finance their $200+ million
Rogers Harry Jerome Coliseum. We now have ALL city councillors and the mayor in unison caroling “where else can we put density!” Gone are the days of these three city councillors supporting NIMBY’s in their quest for less density. ‘Cause you see folks “community density trumps hypocrisy!” #EnoughBullCrap
In fact these turncoat city councillors are more than ready to help the mayor’s double dipping 2014 campaign investors Darwin Properties deconstruct two blocks of a neighbourhood for eight long years! Having seemingly turned their backs on an entire neighbourhood community.
Outside of perhaps city councillor Keating feeling pressure from this his neighbourhood – it looks like a done deal on a scale not yet carved in stone. There is an apparent nonsensical haste by Councillors Bell, Bookham and Clark (along with councillor Back & wannabe mayor Buchanan) to ramrod these two joined at the hips whoring projects through before the next election in 135 days/19 weeks.
I believe a “majority” of Upper Lonsdale residents will be drawing a line in the sand at “both ends” of the existing Harry Jerome Lands. If these two farcical developments come to fruition via our sitting council, there should be an en masse “demo-vote-eviction” of these city councillors on October 20th. #LestWeForget #ElectionPayBack
