No Vision is what we have had for the past three years, led by Gregor “Son of Sam” Robertson. Since there is no Vision, let’s make that a fact on Council from 2011 forward. After all, we do not want the people and our city to perish. (That’s an allusion.) Watch big lies being told in December 2008 at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdpOAPgGHmQ

This is all about an alternative to the developer-funded Vision-NPA axis. Some of those wolves shake with the left paw, some of those wolves shake with the right paw – but all of those wolves dress up in a sheep costume and bleat the word “neighbourhood”!

Here is one more massive spot rezoning that takes no real account of the CityPlan mandated “neighbourhood centre” (one of 19) that was supposed to be designed for Kingsway/ Joyce and include all of Kingsway from Rupert to Boundary.
Grab that big parcel of land, rezone the heck out of it, dump on towering density, and hope to keep on keeping on.
The Vision/NPA-developer axis aims to wrap up and deliver this package before the Nov 19 election. Too late and too bad for this opaque done deal out in the boonies of Far East Vancouver.
But not too late to vote for a change in what the speculators and profiteers see as Vancouver’s future.
