Here is the News1130 article about the proposal getting shot down:

https://www.citynews1130.com/2021/10...reet-increase/

These are the CoV councilors that voted in favour of the proposal:

- Pete Fry (Green)
- Adriane Carr (Green)
- Michael Wiebe (Green)
- Christine Boyle (OneCity)
- Jean Swanson (COPE)

The NPA / ex-NPA councilors all voted against the proposal, and Mayor Kennedy Stewart casted the deciding vote to shoot the proposal down. But don't think for a minute that Stewart is the knight in shining armour saving the day. With With an overwhelming public opposition against the plan as well as the municipal election coming up in Oct 2022, Steward would be committing instant political suicide if he voted in support of the proposal, given the evenly split council votes. So all the reasons that Stewart has cited to justify his deciding vote were BS.

I get the climate crisis angle.

I don't get how taxing people to shit for parking their car leads to a reduction in emissions that's significant in any way.

Under normal circumstances, I would have expected the CoV Council to go back to their secret war room and dream up another scheme to milk drivers and residents in the name of "climate change action". But given how municipal election will happen next year, it wouldn't make any sense for them to push for anything along those lines between now and next October. It is far more likely that they'll make it as part of their election platform / campaigning efforts to push for this sort of plan. So it becomes very important for the public to challenge their stance at election time, and use our votes to tell the municipal gov what we are looking for in our next group of municipal administrators.

If voters are stupid enough to vote these clowns back in, then they'd have a stronger than ever mandate to push those ridiculous plans through. Unfortunately, voter turn out at the last CoV election was under 40%, so it isn't that difficult for the impractical idiots to get elected.

Not to mention when so many people are working from home and their cars are just parked outside.

Mobility pricing is 1000% going to come, just a matter of time. It will address the soon to be shortfall in gas tax revenue (with the transition to EVs) and it will legit reduce congestion in the downtown core. Will be a matter of who has the guts to pull the trigger and live with the blowback.
