Long time readers of this space — and those who follow Vancouver municipal politics closely — will know that Mayor Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver are creatures of Joel Solomon and his Billionaire Boy’s Club. However, it is a surprise, even to me, to see that Vancouver-Mount Pleasant NDP candidate Melanie Mark needs to be added to the list of Solomon’s playmates.
Joel and Dana Solomon are hosting a get-to-know Melanie party at their place in Gastown on Monday evening. It is, of course, an exclusive invitation-only event. Have you been invited? No, neither have I.
Ms Mark doesn’t live in the riding (she’s from Burnaby) and now we find she’s being pushed by the super-rich 1%ers who are helping to wreck Vancouver’s neighbourhoods, especially here on the east-side. That’s two strikes.
Voting for Pete Fry will be the third strike and she’ll be outta here!
