An oldie (Sep 2013) but a goodie borrowed from Jonathan Baker’s blog at an apropos time it would seem. The OCP public hearing is scheduled for March 3rd. Quoting in part:
‘It is time to complain about the quality of protesting that is going on.
We are on a tipping point. Many Vancouverites think their politicians are mad as hell. They are not going to take it anymore.
This isn’t planning. It is block busting. People who just want to be left alone, feel they will have to take the money and run. It is all driven by a despised Council and planning department.
The form of protesting, however, does not rise above the curb so well occupied by the politicians.
