Leader of Vancouver’s new Cedar Party hoping to put a spoke in Mayor Gregor Robertson’s wheels

Leader of Vancouver’s new Cedar Party hoping to put a spoke in Mayor Gregor Robertson’s wheels.

Quoting in part:  concerns are similar to those in the city of North Vancouver, with all the new development and OCP amendments coming:

Chernen charges that Vision is driven by real estate backers. According to campaign finance documents real estate industry sources contributed about half of the party’s $2.2 million election financing for 2011.

“Right now, city hall is completely usurped by developers,” he alleges. “These rezonings are like a slow motion expropriation of all of our land, with no consultation.”

Chernen’s party, and the other civic upstarts like TEAM and Vancouver First, will be trying to position themselves as the champions of the Vancouver neighbourhoods that have chafed at Vision’s density and transportation development agenda
