With the advent of mystacheonline.com blog coming to an official end, drifting on the WordPress internet airwaves … And having now been able to easily sustain (see video) and enjoy residency in downtown Cochrane AB; there really has been no need to continue a blog themed and targeting the NVCHall and Council., i.e. meet the new boss same as the damn old boss continuum. #cnvSOL
I thought I would take the time and compile 140 from the over 500 satirical caricatured themed blogs I created. As always when creating a new blog I would make sure music was ever so present in the background. It was no different composing this final video. Good music always took the edge off any frustration, disappointment or disbelief over the collusion, corruption and backroom politicking from our previous NIMBY disconnected and sanctimonious city council.
Ex-mayor Mussatto and nightmayor Buchanan may think they have had the last laugh having defeated the intent of my blog… But the fact will always remain – anytime “they” or anyone does a web search or does an image search of either ex-mayor Mussatto or nightmayor Buchanan my characterization of them will always be there, over & over again – ha, ha.
My 15 minutes of CNV caricature fame is over…
The residents of CNV have spoken… WANTING EVEN MORE EN MASSE DENSITY, TRAFFIC CONGESTION, UNAFFORDABLE HOUSING and DEVELOPER COLLUSION that will only further grease its farcical OCP… Tolling Linda Buchanan’s as its next night-mayor. Someone who as her 2014/2018 City Council record pledgedly pro ports: will CONTINUE IGNORING RESIDENT’S CONCERNS and PETITIONS and BOWING DOWN to the DEMANDS of her VULTUROUS DEVELOPERS – Congratulations! #SellOutBuchanan #cnvSOL
First I want to thank all those who wanted to support my run for city councillor. This was by no means an easy decision, triggered by June 18’s underhanded Harry Jerome Lands Rezoning Public Hearing and then the unconscionable audacity of Darwin/Collier Realty to release “in print’ the knowledge that Harry Jerome Lands behind Harry Jerome Neighbourhood resident’s back is a foregone conclusion!
The 8 to 9 years needed to construct these premeditated faulty towers and annihilation of the existing Harry Jerome Lands is the straw that broke my camel’s back. I will not spend a decade in a convoluting “destroy and build” city council SELLOUT CONSTRUCTION ZONE!
Moving on… We are only “101 days or 14 weeks + 3 days” away from electing a new mayor & hopefully six “new” neighbourly city councillors. Currently we have two insiders and 1 1/2 outsiders, Guy Heywood having served previously on the 2009 city council running for mayor… Curious, does anyone know what happened to Heywood’s drummed-up NVCAA regime? Their website is MIA.
With 4 candidates running for mayor maybe we’ll begin to read and hear a little “pre-season” mayoral race trash talk along with fireworks turfing and boasting on who is best suited to be our new leader. Wouldn’t it be nice if these four familiar contenders inspired others to run for mayor. Mayoral candidates bringing a breath of fresh air in social & economic perspectives. Especially after being held hostage for 4 long years by a city council that is developer compliant and anti NIMBY! But running for mayor ain’t cheap, same goes running for city councillor!
I left out pro-amalgamation George Pringle who has not officially thrown-in his hat into the mayor’s ring. In the last election he received around 300 votes. But it would be interesting in having two amalgamation candidates running and see who would get the majority of the CNV “307” who voted in favour i.e. twinning of our North Shore cities from the recent farcical District/NRG reunification survey.
In our upcoming election with limited mayoral spending limits and donor restrictions, don’t be surprised if at least one of our contender’s legitimacy is impaired by their campaign disingenuous endeavours. Much like Guy Heywood noted & presented at a March 2015 city council meeting… https://nvcityvoices.wordpress.com/2015/page/14/
Let the mayoral war games begin!
…demands that could also see our mayor wrangle his Team Bandits into agreeing to his Push Bike Wet Dream. Something “city owned eBikes” – could easily resolve – “rented out” at NVCH’s north court plaza at a fraction of the cost and upkeep. An Eco-green cycling city hall revenue making first in Canada!…but then again perhaps not as this would be too easy and cost effective and would give tourists a great alternative cycling option to enjoy our city in the summertime…as in clement summery conditions!”
