This coming Sunday is the AGM for the Grandview-Woodland Area Council. I have written before about how this venerable institution is in danger of losing all relevance.
Now I hear rumours that the Kettle Boffo group is going to attempt to take over GWAC for their own single issue purpose. The rumour is they plan to do this by busing in homeless folks from all over the city to vote for their slate. They know that GWAC — whose membership policies are as loose at they need at any particular moment — will not ask for ID from the homeless.
If they succeed, GWAC’s integrity as a genuinely local community group will be shattered beyond saving. Regardless of that, I am sure the Vision majority on City Council — which for years has been dissing GWAC — will suddenly declare it a wonderful institution.
If the rumours prove true, both Boffo and the Kettle will be showing their utter disrespect for the community that has supported them for decades.
