Heated debate at District Council meeting

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: http://www.dnv.org/upload/documents/Council_Agendas_Minutes/ca120123_files/image001.gifAgenda Item 9.6.     Bylaws 8080 and 8094: Rezoning and Housing Agreement-             

Bylaws for a 16 Unit Apartment Project at 1591 Bowser Avenue made for good theater. Some councillors say there is consensus from the electorate to have a pause on        development and some say that a pause is the wrong thing to do.

Some quotes of note from the meeting;

"We should not be advancing any development proposals until after that meeting (a phased implementation plan meeting on January 21st)." - Counc. Muri

"To make a blanket statement of, "I'm not willing to support" prior to a matter would indicate a prejudice and perhaps a closed mind". - Counc. Bassam

"I'm calling for a pause and I believe the electorate supported a pause". - Counc. Hanson

"We can't just stop in mid progress".- Counc. Hicks

"We can't just stop the boat in the middle of the ocean". - Counc. Bond

"It's not prohibition, it's phased development so her (Counc. Muri) mind is in fact open".- Counc. MacKay-Dunn

The Blog is looking for some answers

With the Federal election coming up within the next year, who are the candidates in North Vancouver? And in North Burnaby-Seymour?

Has Mike Little actually been chosen or just nominated as the Tory candidate for NB-S? (If he was it didn't get much Press). With the current controversy over Kinder Morgan's possible pipeline expansion in Burnaby Mountain in this riding, should we be asking Mr. Little's what his position is? Or for that matter any candidate who will be running there?

According to the snail mail Andrew Saxton is trying to not go away.

Who are the Liberal candidates?

Who are the NDP candidates?

North Vancouver Election Results Analysis

Back on October the 11th. under the post 'All in' an anonymous
made the prediction below about the election results.
Except for Bill Bell to replace Craig Keating in the City which was
a bit odd, the prediction was accurate. While much of the return of 
incumbents of both elections was quite predictable, what stands 
out is the election of Mathew Bond to District council. This is a
candidate who pretty much came out of nowhere, but was 
elected on his first try. So why was he elected when he wasn't
broadly known in the community? 

Will the real anonymous stand up?
