The 3-Billion Dollar Hole In the Ground

January 20, 2017

After a quiet period of some months, the ugly business of Gregor Robertsons’ cronies’ wet dream of developing profit-driven condo tower blocks all along Broadway financed on the backs of a $3billion dollar subway to nowhere, is gurgling to the surface once again.


Translink are holding “Public Consultations for the Millenium Line Extension to Arbutus” at three locations on three dates:

  • January 28, 1:00pm to 5:00pm, at Douglas Park Community Centre;
  • January 31, 4:00pm to 8:00pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre;
  • February 1, 4:00pm to 8:00pm at Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral

From their format and timings, I am guessing these are display panels, plus yellow stickies plus a questionaire affair — not a dialog or genuine collaborative discussion.  But we should always attend these things and make our marks whenever and wherever we can.

I wrote my views opposing a subway some time ago, and I still stand by those statements today.


Reason #225 NOT to use Facebook

January 20, 2017

Because Mark Zuckerberg is a billionaire bully-boy trying to force Hawai’ians off their land. He thinks that his $100 million is more important than the rights these folks have built up over generations. And he is trying to buy the law to get what he wants. As one local says:

“he moves in and acts just like the Evil Rich White Man taking from the Hawaiians. That is so gnarly. Zero respect.”
