‘EXCLUSIVE’ Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver Don’t Care About the Safety of School Children–Black Ice Hits Vancouver and Only Bike Lanes Get Serviced!
Global warming huckster Al Gore recently sold his share in the far left leaning Current TV for a reported $100,000,000. He founded the station with his partner in grime, millionaire lawyer Joel Hyatt (founder of Hyatt Legal Services).
The story never received any significant coverage in the liberal ravaged Canadian media. Mind, it’s tough getting a story out on something this significant when your priorities range from injured dogs to Brian Burke’s woes (these may be redundant).
The hypocrisy of global warming/climate change fools is what I’m getting at, and it was manifest this morning.
First a little on their high priest, for context.
Gore sold his station to al-Jazeera. For those of you unfamiliar with the genesis of this evil network, it routinely features terrorist messages from al-Qaeda and one of their producers was recently arrested for being a Taliban operative.
More to the point, they are fuelled (pun intended) by BIG OIL! Imagine! Gore selling to big oil. al-Jazeera was birthed in Qatar by oil sheiks, who not only don’t care about global warming, they relish in it. Well, now they’ve got a foothold of the American cable market with subscribers in 60,000,000 American homes (this was reduced by 12,000,000 thanks to the principled folks at Time Warner, who refuse to carry the new al-Jazeera version of Current).
It all speaks to the hypocrisy of the green movement and how they couldn’t give a rats derriere about you or the planet–it’s about using mother earth to string the willing dupes along, just to make money or advance themselves.
Remember Andrew Weaver, who is running for the Greens in Victoria? Well, he actually made phone calls in support of the IPP-promoting, fish farm-loving, BC Liberals in the 2009 election. Of course, it had nothing to do with grants thrown around by the provincial government, nooo, not at all.
Remember David Suzuki, whose charity finally had a proper audit a few years ago. Well, he used to fly several times a week from his home in Port Hardy to Vancouver. No pollution issues there, no siree…
Though, there can be no greater political green fraud than what we endure in Vancouver. I speak, of course, of the vicious movement known as Vision Vancouver.
These people are sick–truly sick. From their bizarre initiatives encouraging chicken coops and wheat gardens to expensive bike lane counters, the city of Vancouver has ground to a halt in terms of infrastructure services. I recently enjoyed listening to my old friend Heather Deal lie without a hint of shame, about what the city was providing with respect to de-icing and road clearing.
And then, we have this morning’s nightmare.
If you were on any of the roads, main or otherwise, in Vancouver today, you’d have seen the nightmare that Vision Vancouver have delivered to the people.
Black ice everywhere, accidents galore, buses stranded, people falling and hurting themselves while taking their kids to school (including my wife, who has a badly bruised knee) and not one goddamned street service crew in action.
I drove around in my SUV for two hours, just to see what was happening.
Oh wait, I saw one crew in action: In the bloody bike lane on Dunbar!!! The rest of the city was in a shambles, but the commute to school today proved beyond hazardous!
For those who missed it, just highlights from across the city:
• ELEVEN accidents on Kingsway alone. FOUR on Main. SEVEN on the west side, FIVE on the DTES (this just from what a VPD pal reported to me early this morning).
• Buses lined up and out of service all along Mackenzie Street–SIX of them at one point.
• A city service vehicle STRANDED on a curb off 35th almost at Main, with a salt truck parked behind it. The dimwitted driver was more interested in his colleague’s dilemma than getting his ass on the roads and making sure taxpaying citizens weren’t in identical predicaments.
• 41st Avenue, which runs along from UBC to the east side, a solid sheet of black ice.
But on two bike lanes, I witnessed with my own eyes, city workers trying to get a patch of ice broken up in one and a similar problem in the other…while the streets were ice rinks!!!
You stupid bastards at City Hall that think this is at all acceptable!
Mind you, what’s the point: As long as Peter Armstrong and his destructive crew are going to dismantle the NPA (like they haven’t killed it already) these political hooligans with Vision can play these games with the lives of citizens all they like. As long as Peter is busy puckered as Suzanne Anton and Mike Klassen’s bottoms, Vision can laugh this one off all day long. They will ruin this city, mark my words. All while the NPA have allowed completely incompetent leaders to wage an internecine war.
But hey, it’s ALL Vision, my darlings. And their tyranny!
Just so long as the empty bike lanes are clear! Listen, anyone in a bike lane when it’s freezing weather deserves their injuries. Only a complete moron would venture out into the ice and snow on a bicycle.
Stupid, stupid bastards with Vision Vancouver, I sincerely hope just the half dozen victims I know–just from falls on city streets this morning, lawyer up and sue Penny Ballem, Gregor Robertson and every damn Vision councillor for everything they’re worth.
Did anyone notice political sellout Sandy Garossino on the news last night??? She’s Joel Solomon’s new media instrument. A very fine prosecutor in her day, Garossino, years later, waged decent and principled wars against the Vegas-style casino once slated for downtown Vancouver, and against density insanity for Vision’s developer pals. But that was before she stabbed most of her political supporters in the back and became a sellout for the extremism of the green-crazy Tides Foundation, which funds Vision Vancouver. Anyway, for the benefit of the blind players on the center-right who missed it, Garossino was on Global last night, bloviating about the “cultural space” at the old Waldorf. Her quote was interesting. That’s where Vancouver’s “future begins.” Really? Not in the classrooms of schools and universities that bookend this city? Not in machine shops or trades facilities? Not in libraries or after school tutorial halls? The future of this city begins, according to Sandy Gassbag in a dingy room, with strung out DJs and doped up followers. Marvelous! Brilliant! After Vision used the cycling and skateboarding anarchists to fill the ballot boxes, now they’re going after the arts kiddies.
All while vital viaducts are destroyed and the city generally falls apart.
Except for bike lanes.
On the road again this week, chasing down more BC Liberal stories.
I’ll give you the Mackin piece later tonight and show you how Christy’s people are intimidating and using their media friends to advance their cause.
