Some things I found interesting.

"Iíll also raise the minimum wage to $15, then to a living wage so people can afford to live here."

"Landlords will be asked to report property usage, and we will do spot inspections backed by fines, and we can use hydro data to help target inspections, among other mechanisms."

"We need the vacant properties to be freed up. If a landlord can afford to leave it empty, they can afford to pay more."

"Iíll protect tenantís security, so that landlords canít evade rent regulations by renovating or demolishing."

" I am a community gardener myself, and if CPR wants more that what they claim on their tax returns, then Iíll expropriate the land."

Spoiler!

Half the stuff she says, the mayor doesn't even have the power to do.

^^ She's learned from Robertson and Vision. Make grandiose claims, and then blame others when unable to fulfill them.

you mean like protesting the pipelines?

seriously though. is there any incentive for her to drop out of the race in an attempt to allow new leadership to come in: i.e. to help lapointe win?

I'm curious as the paper noted a recent poll showing Moonbeam: 46% LaPointe 36% Wong 18% or something along those lines

First day of advance voting today:

2014 municipal election advance voting day | City of Vancouver

It's time to kick out Robertson's Visionistas and his war on cars

I just moved to Richmond so I thought I'd look into the candidates and found this debate.

A month ago I was sure that I would be voting against Vision. However after finding that the NPA and Kirk LaPointe have absolutely NO platform based off of their website and interviews, and Meena Wong has no idea what she is doing all-together, it seems that my only two choices are voting for Vision or spoiling my ballot.

NPA's platform is now online (finally!):

Quote:
Vancouver,

Over the past months and years, we’ve listened to you tell us about the Vancouver you want.

A government that listens and responds to your concerns,
A city that is affordable, filled with opportunity, and easy to get around,
A city that is clean; that maintains its parks and green spaces,
A city that ensures children don’t go to school hungry, and
A government that returns the community to the forefront of the planning process.
We have the same concerns. The current administration at City Hall is so often engaged in ideological battles that they have failed to put Vancouverites’ best interests at the centre of decision making.

Our platform is the NPA’s response to your issues.

At Vancouver’s City Hall we will deliver the most open government in Canada, support economic growth and high paying jobs, and restore real, meaningful consultation with the city’s residents, while at the same time spending responsibly on the right initiatives to ensure the City’s finances return to health.

A Stronger Economy
A Better Managed City
A More Engaged City

This is the Vancouver we want: a vibrant, inclusive, affordable city where everyone’s voices are heard. Here’s how we’re going to get there.
Platform - Vote NPA Vancouver 2014

^ You cannot be more vague than this. Lol. Of the three main parties, this is the weakest platform I've read. Not voting for NPA for sure now.

LOL!

Those are goals. That is what every single city in the world wants. He has no platform on how he is going to accomplish any of that. I should be running for mayor.

I was hoping for better candidates, but unfortunately I'll be voting for Gregor again. I don't like how non transparent the NPA are right now. No platform, and after deciding to show their donators list, they say due to admin delays they won't be able to show it. Looks like they are off to a weak start. How do you not have a platform by now?

The mayor is butt hurt over Kirk LaPointe and the NPA's attack ads.

Vision Vancouver suing NPA's Kirk Lapointe for defamation


Robertson will wipe away his tears by building another bike lane. Then he will ride his expensive bicycle on it while drinking a fruit juice and kale smoothie and snack on a veggie wrap.....

I was listening to CKNW tonight on my way home and Vision Vancouver was running attack ads against NPA and Kirk Lapointe (ad specified party name and mayoral candidate too), so I guess the NPA should file a counter-lawsuit against Vision Vancouver and Mayor Moonbeam then. Haha

So how much longer do we have to dodge those fricking campaign signs............

I mean they are not distracting like hot chicks in shorts..............just annoying as hell.

I even see that shit when driving around Bellingham. Ban those signs. I'll gladly sign a petition. They are a hazard and a safety concern. Wait till the winds pick up.

Going through meena wongs platform and what she wants to accomplish,I do believe she wants to do some good for the city of vancouver but she has no idea what she's doing and the agenda she's proposing would have huge economical repercussions. Like others, I was going to vote for the npa just to get Gregor out of the office but the more I try to learn about the npa, the more I realize they're just running a smear campaign with no definitive strategy or plan, looks like I'm gonna be voting for vision after all.

Now that, my man, is a great idea!

It will get votes....... but, you have to have hot guys for the women and the queers. BTW, queer is what they prefer to be called nowadays, amiright?


It's hard to stay politically correct these days...... can't call them Indians......... First Nations? Indigenous peoples, Aboriginals, NA Indians, etc.


okay, getting off topic, LOL

funny i thought vision had a worse smear campaign. the 2 ladies on the radio saying how he's inexperienced as a leader or has no opinion of the pipeline, or the "he doesn't even LIVE or PAY TAXES in VANCOUVER!!!!!"

Just wondering if you can post some of those smear campaign sources -- personally I haven't seen any. My FB feed is full of vision paid attack ads on kirk lapointe, but I don't see any from the NPA. Which makes sense because FB isn't their demographic -- maybe they are on the radio/tv?

I've already voted -- hooray for no lineups at advance polls! I'd just like to see what they are attacking Robertson with.

The NPA attack ads are on CKNW.
