Make Susan Anton and the NPA Go Away, Far Away!

I haven`t much to say about the civic elections.....However..

I look forward to the look on Mr. Peary`s face when his P3 water sell-out gets voted out and flushed down the toilet by Abottsford voters(Take that Harper, your Federal bribe for P3s is falling on deaf ears, a sign of things to come)..

And as for Sleazy Anton versus Gregor Robertson....

Congratulations Gregor Robertson,....... This result neither pleases or upsets me, but the one thing I do look forward to,....

Is never having to hear  Susan Anton`s blathering bullshit again, I have never heard of seen the likes of a single councilor getting as much airtime as Susan Anton has gotten, and has gotten it for years, on Global,  almost a daily regular on CKNW....For the last 3 years Sussie has been flipping, flopping and giving us all headaches!

The bike lanes, there are thousands of streets in Vancouver, it wouldn`t matter where or which lanes were chosen the vocal minority would be howling and calling for Gregor`s head.....

Gregor Robertson, as Ian Reid points out, put up a strong defence and halted the big casino expansion the BC Liberals were ramming down our throats...

The Vancouver hockey riots, a no-win situation, Kobayashi Maru....The riot was merely BC Tradition, the only way to stop that riot was if 1000s of cops were deployed to prevent it, and then the Gregor critics would lambaste him for using heavy hands(like a police state) to stop nothing......

Susan Anton brings nothing to the table...

 I have a few words about the hockey riots, total damage was around $5 million dollars(David Hahn`s lifetime pension alone is worth more than that), the City and Province are on pace to spend double or triple that trying to punish the losers and participants, the biggest harm the riot brought was in world-wide embarrassment for British Columbia and Vancouver, so what else is new, Gordon Campbell embarrassed us for years, he still is, time to move on, this is throwing good money after bad..Not that i`m against punishment, the problem is, they won`t get any punishment, perhaps you remember the Taco-Del Mar bomber case in Vancouver, a case that concluded with a guilty plea....The man got house arrest for his sentence, let me remind you what this man did....

He committed insurance fraud for a relative and owner of a restaurant that was going bankrupt, that restaurant was the Taco Del Mar, this man, late at night, with containers of fuel, blew up the restaurant in a big old explosion, in fact he almost killed himself with fire and burns, the building was destroyed, 5 other buildings damaged badly too...Over$5 million dollars in damages, 1000`s of dollars in medical bills, ....This guy could have killed many, 2 weeks after the explosion the wife of the restaurant owner was found dead at the bottom of Lions Bay Cliff, an apparent stress related to the Taco Del Mar event suicide, or was it something else, was she insured too?....I don`t know about that......

The point I am making is this, if a man blows up 6 building with gasoline in an insurance fraud case, that leads to a suicide or worse, costs to the BC Medical and potentially endangering the public, a gas bomb for goodness sakes, when he was sentenced to house arrest with NO RESTITUTION at all, meaning he`s scott free, sitting at home with his pretty young pregnant wife with provisions for shopping and errands, ....If that`s what a real criminal gets for a sentence(read whole story here) what on earth is Joe Public caught up in a alcohol fueled mob mentality riot going to get....Nothing, so why bog down our courts with this crap?

My biggest complaint with all politicians, tell the truth, after the riots the Mayor should have said..."oops"...And moved on, the athletes village, same thing, the NPA screwed that project from the get-go, all this blather about how to fix the mess, eggs don`t get unscrambled, the Olympic village will lose hundreds of $millions in tax dollars,....Just tell the truth, too much effort has been put in to cover politician`s rear ends,...

Politicians need to give the people The Straight Goods, no matter where the blame falls!

Runner ups in Mayoral races don`t get any airtime, a tradition that hopefully remains...

Now go vote(Please)

The Straight Goods

Cheers Eyes Wide Open

I can just imagine how fast Anton would have sent in the Jack booted storm troopers to evict Occupy BC. I revelled every day watching her chomping at the bit, trying not to yell "get those hippies and no goods out of there."

If she's elected there is going to be bad things happening in Vancouver.

Right on. Couldn't have said it better myself. The trouble is the 1% have taken the last 50 years to corrupt our political system to their financial gain and benefit and to hell with anyone else. Why else have they been able to 'buy' up the media and politicians with impunity. Heed, Les, etc. etc. not one held to account. And to think it all probably started with Phlying Phyl and his highway property deals AND getting away with it. (At least here in BC)

But...........Anton did read up on urban transit, something that Robertson hasn't done.

Anton supported Streetcars and Condon's streetcar plans, instead of Robertson's $4.5 billion Broadway subway!

Because the SkyTrain Lobby and the Corporate lobby are anti streetcar because they are just as effective but a lot cheaper than a SkyTrain subway, there is less taxpayer's money flowing to bureaucrats, engineers, planners and construction workers.

It was refreshing to hear a Vancouver politician get off the SkyTrain/subway only page.

Excuse me Evil Eyed one, but I didn't think Skytrain was something decided upon in the Mayor of Vancouver's office. I was actually living in exile in Van when the first leg of Skytrain opened in time for Expo '86, and Bennett the Lesser (Mini-Wac) was all over that opening like stink and I don't even remember who was mayor when I lived there, tho I'm sure he was allowed to hold the ribbon while Mini-Wac operated the scissors. I rode for free that first day from Broadway station, out to New West and then downtown - where I wound up about seven stories under the Bay.

I guess Saturday proved how much AGT the genetic throwback understands what is happening in the world outside his basement and sycophantic adulators, pretend and otherwise. Bye bye Anton, bye bye NPA and congrats Adriane Carr for winning the Harry Rankin prize for perseverance.........I guess not that many folks other than the greasy one hisself actually hate bike lanes and chickens all that much, eh?

AGT also SWORE on the best blog on earth that there wouldn't be a plea in the Basi-Virk case and HE IS THE WORLD'S LEADING EXPERT ON ALL THINGS BC RAIL!!!!!!! I call BULLSHIT

@Kootcoot

The Vancouver city Engineering department have quietly championed SkyTrain since 1980 and maneuvered planning to build more grade separated SkyTrain so the city streets remain for autos.

They advise city council as per transit planning and currently been supply Vancouver council with untrue accounts about LRT and streetcars.

It is the Engineering dept. that has laid the foundation for SkyTrain in Vancouver.

Anton's support for streetcars = her non support of the City Engineering Dept.
