Four years ago, for the last week of November, Dawn and I visited my sister Maria, and her husband Julio in Mascota, a quaint Jaliscan agricultural centre of about 30,000 people, in the fertile Mascota valley, between Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta.

In the late autumn of 2006, the ride up the often unpaved highway along the edge of the Mascota river, between Puerto Vallarta and Mascota, took about about an hour and an a half, and was very scenic.

But sometimes it was subject to rockslides, heavy rain and other obstacles and was too frightening for Dawn ever to want to return.

But Maria seemed like an old Mexican driving pro behind the wheel, and Julio seemed to have an uncanny ability to know exactly where we were at any given point along the way.

This unusual ability at first strikes one as odd, until one remembers his special gifts from the Creator, given to him because he is blind, of course.

Maria and Julio took all the debris and danger on the side of highway in stride, as Maria drove at a good clip in their jeep-like pick up, equiped with huge tires to negociate ancient rugged rock-paved village roads, cut out of the steep, high hillsides of obscure little off-the-beaten-track valleys.

Here are some pictures I took at the time, about November 23 – 30, 2006, never before released, that may be of interest to all those who love and remember Maria and Julio and know my dear wife Dawn.

ANTI-DEMOCRATIC TYRANT DINO’S BIG CHILL: Why did the Yellow Fortinites wage such a brutal Orwellian-Machiavellian VOTE YES campaign of orders, lies, fearful media manipulation in Victoria Referendum? Gregory Hartnell on how a supposedly ‘progressive’ mayor’s stimulus vanity project morphed into a thuggish anti-democratic bullying of Victoria’s Registered Voters. Victoria’s Brave New World of Socialist Historical Revisionism 101: Prof. Fortin, Political Scientist Extraordinaire will show how he claimed support of 74% Silent Majority absentee boycotters!!

SNOW OFTEN FALLS IN NOVEMBER IN VICTORIA:

November snowfall, 1357 Rockland, Victoria 2009, by ‘Goyo de la Rosa’

 

The phenomenon of historical revisionism now operative at Victoria City Hall is not exclusive to socialist regimes, but is found in all anti-democratic tyrannies worldwide.

I specialized in Modern European History and Modern Latin American History (post-Renaissance)  when studying in the Department of History at the University of San Francisco in the 80s and 90s, and became familiar with the various deplorable techniques used by such regimes to brainwash their own people into a kind of sullen acceptance of corruption, influence-peddling, ‘election’ manipulation, daily propaganda bombardment in all media, etc.

Techniques of persuasion used by the Fortinite VOTE YES campaign, leading up to, during, and after the recent Victoria Byelection-Referendum campaign had all the hallmarks of such totalitarian manipulative tricks.

The very carefully contrived message management of the socialist Yellow-Orange NDP Mayor, especially with respect to the monopoly daily newspaper’s one-sided telling of his sad story of danger, decay, earthquakes, high taxes and permanent closures on the Johnson Street Bridge, was transparently crafted to achieve a particular desired result, that being a supposed concern on his part that Victoria voters become aware and concerned enough about these supposed dangers to public safety, to get out and do something they have not done in a very long time.

That was to vote in the middle of a very cold November in a caprious and unnecessary extraordinary referendum, when they have historically been known not to have ever done so in significant numbers that have any real scientific meaning that is really discernable.

In other words, the socialist mayor, compelled by the legal results of the counter-petition organized by JSB.org, had two options, to set a date for a referendum to be held during the next general local election in 2011, thus allowing accountability to Victoria voters who could then also vote for or against Councillor Candidates at the same time, or to evade accountability by choosing the more expedient route for his stimulus-addicted purposes, one held at a time convenient to his manipulative plan this year, during a time of the 2010 year that really is quite miserable in Victoria’s scientifically predictable calendar of nasty weather.

The socialist mayor didn’t care if by doing so he would make life miserable for the thousands of old Victoria folks who usually wisely stay inside to avoid such cold weather.

Those elderly, educated, responsible Victoria citizen-taxpayer-voters have exercised their democratic franchise in freedom over the decades, and have developed a life-long voting habitus, and made it co-natural with their concept of themselves as good citizens, and are thus usually the most informed and engaged citizens in local democracy in this city.

They pay their ever-escalating residential property taxes, and they keep close watch on household budgets, apparently unlike the present spendthrift administration at Victoria City Hall.

But this time, an extraordinary 74% of these Victoria citizens chose not to come out on a November day which threatened snow, a day that was thus sabotaged by a well-organized NDP Orange – Carole James Yellow – Victoria Pride Parade Purple coalition that supported the Fortinite YES side for the Referendum question, and the NDP’s Saanich Candidate Alto, an interloper into the Victoria Byelection.

The extraordinary Victoria Referendum which was really not all that urgent, should thus more properly have been postponed by an ethical, non-partisan Victoria City Council until next year, to coincide with the next regularly scheduled local general election, thus ensuring a degree of accountability for bedeviled Victoria residential property taxpayers, who would then have had the opportunity to exercise their rightful option of either endorsing the mayor’s plan, or of replacing this maddening lot of spendthrift, “YES”, socialist, and incumbent career Councillors with new fiscally responsible “NO” Candidates for the Victoria City Council, along with their NO votes, in a complete sweep.

The NDP Orange, Carole James-supporting, Yellow Scarf-wearing  NDP Mayor of Victoria, Dean Fortin didn’t want that outcome, of course, and notwithstanding his pro-forma statements to the contrary made before the vote, nor did he want his real preferred outcome, low voter turnout, part of the November stolen surprise.

Dean Fortin didn’t want the voter turnout to be enhanced with any real influx of new or reawakened Victoria voters, as low voter turnout actually suits his anti-democratic instincts quite well, as was also the case in the election of his preferred NDP Candidate in the concurrent Byelection, Marianne Alto.

He was also in a hurry to avoid imminent new reforms to the Local Government Elections Act, 31 of which have been recommended by a special Task Force on such reforms, and green-lighted for implementation as law by the present provincial government, before that 2011 election, as indicated in a press release found at Communities Minister Stephanie Cadieux’s website.

The Yellow cult Mayor publicly pretended that he hoped these formerly reluctant, but now magically hardy, informed, motivated and enthusiastic Victoria voters would finally come out, exercise their long disused franchise in an extraordinary referendum at a nasty time of year, or perhaps vote for the very first time in the case of young new voters, and give the City of Victoria a resounding YES vote to ‘go forward in a sustainable progressive’ way.

But I seriously question whether Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin really wanted a resounding voter turnout in the Victoria Byelection Referendum of 2010 at all.

If he had really wanted such a turnout, would it not have been more rational, efficacious and ethical to have produced a completely neutral ‘information campaign’ on the referendum, rather than a blatantly partisan and aggressive one-sided propaganda barrage, using public money, which was sure to engender a major negative, non-approving or non-co-operative reaction from disgusted, cynical, disinterested, angry or oppositional voters?

The Mayor never indicated before the results were counted that he would claim any non-votes as somehow later indicating a kind of cryptic approval of his plan the morning after.

There is no cryptic evidence to be found whatsoever, whether for the YES or NO sides, in the non-involvement of the absentee Silent Majority, save this: they did not vote Yes, nor did they vote No.

By withholding their vote, they can said to have wounded the YES side more, however, because the onus to prove true democratic approbation of the proposed borrowing was squarely on that side.

Once it became evident that 74% of Victoria’s registered voters had boycotted or absented themselves, for whatever reason, the authorities overseeing the vote should have declared the whole exercise null and void, because it then became impossible for the YES side to show a clear double major majority of 71% in the two step process.

In other words, they should have realized at that point that the 74% Silent Majority cohort represented a huge number of Victorian voters who had not allowed their political intentions to be known other than to absent themselves for the whole process.

To have the responsible voters held captive by the whims of this irresponsible Silent Majority is not the way that democracy is supposed to work.

Rather, as even a small child can tell you, the basic idea of democracy is that the will of the majority rules.

Dean Fortin would not have dared announce such an audacious trick posture before the vote was actually undertaken.

But now the Yellow- scarved NDP Mayor of Victoria asks us, as do complacent newspaper editorialists like the Black Press corporatists, to wishfully interpret the Great Cryptic Silence of the 74% Majority as some sort of a mute indicator of their happy approval of his mad new bridge building plan.

According to this fanciful math, that would be about 16% YES votes, plus about 74% absentees, giving the Yellow Wizard of Stimulus Spending a whopping 90% approbation rating for his new bridge building plan.

Such fancies of socialist economic wizardry should not be taken seriously by any democracy-loving people, nor by corporatist newspaper editorial writers, for that matter.

The man in the NDP Yellow scarf at Victoria City Hall apparently has learned all his conjuring tricks from calculating Machiavellian manipulators throughout history.

Who would ever have thought that the suppposedly sophisticated politicos in Victoria, of whatever common sense reasonable political persuasion, and not beholden to such blatant socialist historical revisionism, would ever nod their heads in complacent argreement to such a distortion of the truth?

Mayor Dean Fortin campaigns in the Cook Street Village for a Yes vote on the bridge referendum.

Ninety percent (90%) support among Victoria’s Registered Voters for your new bridge building plans, and only 10% of Victoria’s Registered Voters in the naysayers’ camp against them, you say, sir, in all seriousness?

Seriously, Dean?

With all due respect, sir:

you must be kidding.

‘Yellow Scarf Cult’ NDP Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin feared ‘low voter turnout’ on November 20, calling it ‘his biggest concern right now,’ in Bill Cleverley article, Times Colonist, Nov. 19, 2010

FORTIN’S OWN FEARS OF A LOW VOTER TURNOUT

SHOW HE KNEW THAT SUPPORT WAS WEAK FOR HIS NEW BRIDGE PLAN… 

ONE DAY BEFORE THE NOVEMBER 20 VICTORIA REFERENDUM.

AFTER 74% SILENT MAJORITY BOYCOTTED THE FARCICAL REFERENDUM,

HE THEN CLAIMED ABSENTEES ACQUIESCED TO IT BY NOT VOTING!

 

It is really not very difficult at all to prove that the Mayor of Victoria is now misleading Victoria’s registered voters about the results of the botched referendum.

In this quote, found near the end of a Bill Cleverley article on the November 20 vote in Victoria, the socialist Mayor admitted that he feared ‘low voter turnout.’

In fact, he said that it was his ‘biggest concern right now,’ and that should be borne in mind now by all the historical revisionists who are jumping on his ridiculous bandwagon, trying to manufacture consent for a huge electoral fraud.

All indicators led most pundits to believe that a low turnout was imminent, because the City’s own slanted so-called ‘information sessions’ were very sparsely attended.

The Times Colonist did its dutiful corporatist best job of manufacturing consent for their own editorial support for the flawed stimulus plan, already plagued by obvious corruption, cost upgrades, and hidden agendas, by sending out a staff reporter to take artsy photos of the extensive rust on the bridge from the viewpoint of a slow boat ride, thus providing gullible readers with views of the usually out-of-sight underside of the very rare early modernist Lego-like heritage bascule bridge.

Those photos were printed at the Times Colonist website (and are still available there), in a last-ditch effort to make the City’s case that such damage was already so pervasive as to be beyond hope of repair.

Thus, we can now analyse with ease how the corporatist newspaper conspired with the socialist City administration, to sell the people a contrived one-sided version of ‘information’ that was greeted with bemused incredulity by the vast majority of thinking Victorians, who treated the whole referendum excercise, complete with its trick question, with the contempt that it so rightly deserved.

Others in the NO camp squabbled among themselves and because of the tragic inability or reluctance of the JSB.org people to organize this motley crew of opposition Candidates around one responsible Candidate most likely to win on ethical, economic and conservation arguments, the YES side then claimed a dubious victory, with merely 15.67% of Victoria’s eligible voters endorsing the Mayor’s plan.

With the most significant cohort of Victoria’s registered voters’ sending a somewhat ambiguous message that could be interpreted a number of different ways, the Yellow Mayor then changed his tune again, and claimed that all these boycotting or absentees voters gave approbation or approval to his plan by not participating!

Such historical revisionism is typical of socialist regimes everywhere, but should not be allowed to stand as legally binding in Victoria.

It is also of historical interest to note that a so-called ‘political scientist’ at the University of Victoria, who agreed with the economic arguments made by the YES camp, also had misgivings about a -so-called ‘vocal minority’ sabotaging the referendum, but he couched his concerns in such ambiguous language that it could be interpreted as applicable to any so-called ‘vocal minority.’

Thus, Professor PIlon’s supposedly ‘scientific’ analysis anticipating a dangerous low voter turnout is nothing more than ambiguous speculation, originally apparently designed to cast doubt on the naysayers’ strength, but which now could just as rightly be applied to the Fortinites.

A link to the full article by Bill Cleverley in the Victoria Times Colonist will be found in the comments section below.

SAT. NIGHT 27 NOVEMBER, 2010.

On November 20, actual day of the Victoria Byelection-Referemdum, the Times Colonist announced in advance that ‘several Victoria City Councillors were to be out on the streets today in a last-ditch effort to encourage residents to vote in favour of borrowing $49.2 million to replace the Johnson Street Bridge.’

“I really hope that we have a very large turnout. 

“It’s an important decision and, in the end, we do want to hear from as many people in our community as possible as to how they want to see the City move forward,” Mayor Dean Fortin said….

“[A large turnout] is more representative of the general public.

“The impression I have from the general public i s that they think this is the right thing to do and the right time, and they feel they have enough information,”  [Councillor Pamela] Madoff said.

CCC

So, we know that Pamela Madoff and Dean Fortin were very likely interviewed by the TC writers Bill Cleverley and Kim Wested for their November 20 article ‘Voter turnout may be critical to bridge vote’s outcome’, while about to go, or actually out campaigning for the NDP, the new bridge, the YES, and very likely, their preferred NDP Councilor Candidate, Marianne Alto, probably on Friday, November 19, the day before the Victoria Byelection-Referendum, November 20, 2010. 

The next day, after both were very likely wearing yellow scarves in a Victoria hotel room with a bunch of other Carole James fanatics, they hit the streets of Victoria, with Pam apparently taking Dean down to Cook Street Village, while Dean very likely took Pam over to Haultain to hang out with Marianne at the Kaffe.

Did anyone see Pam, Marianne and Dean with their yellow NDP scarves displayed around their necks in official polling stations on November 20 like the Burnside-Gorge Community Centre, Vic West Community Centre, James Bay New Horizons, James Bay Community School, Fairfield New Horizons, Oaklands School, Quadra School, George Jay School, Central Baptist Church, etc. I wonder?

I notice also that the results of the 2002 Lowe Referendum are being compared to those of  2010, by City of Victoria staff like Mr. Schaeffer. 

But I find it is very difficult to find the final results of that referendum online, for some reason.

I will phone Mr. S. in the morning to get a better look at those numbers.

Fortin calls the possibility of a low voter turnout his single biggest concern right now — although initial reports out of the first day of advance polling show good turnout.

Coun. Chris Coleman, who has been going door to door drumming up support for the borrowing, says he’s found a high degree of voter fatigue over the bridge.

“My fear is that there’s a whole bunch of people who are tired of it as an ongoing issue and are going: ‘Just get on with it.’ But they may not get out to vote,” says Coleman.

A low turnout, Pilon says, would clearly favour a vocal minority.

“I think there are people who are very, very enthusiastic about it so they may end up having much more influence than the general population. As it’s happening with a non-election year, voter turnout will probably be very low.”

VICTORIA STUNNED BY SOCIALISTS’ STOLEN BYELECTION-REFERENDUM STUNT

‘Typical Victoria delayed reaction to shocking news syndrome’

I find it very troubling that editors at the Victoria newspapers are either sitting on readers’ reactions to the events of last weekend, or that Victorians are apparently so stunned by the shocking miscarriage of justice that they have been rendered speechless… so far.

As far as I can discern, not a single letter written by anyone in the CRD was published in the Victoria Times Colonist, the Victoria News, or even in the so-called ‘alternative’ Monday rag in this week immediately after the November 20 vote.

There was one letter to the TC by Michael Butterfield on the new bridge, but that could have been written before the Nov. 20 events happened, and other letters in Monday this week addressed the now-familiar Johnson Street Bridge issues, but none said a thing about the Byelection-Referendum that was stolen by the Yellow Scarf Cult (or the YSC, if you will).

Let’s call this the ‘typcial Victoria delayed reaction to shocking news syndrome’ and that might explain a similar delayed reaction phenomenon that was noted early last year by Yule Heibel (FOCUS magazine’s urbanist columnist at the time), after socialist Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin announced, completely out of the blue, that the City of Victoria was intent on tearing down the heritage Johnson Street Bridge.

Yule Heibel couldn’t quite believe that she was then apparently the only person in this stunned town who thought that the socialist Mayor’s sudden new interest in new bridge designs was odd, as the old bridge’s condition and its future were not mentioned as problematic issues to debate by any incumbent Victoria City Councillors trying to hold onto their seats, nor by any of their would-be challengers in the 2008 campaign.

I have written a number of letters to editors of the Victoria Times Colonist and the Victoria News in the last week, analysing the so-called ‘victory’ that is now being claimed by Carole James’ creepy Yellow Scarf Cult that has presumed to invade Victoria’s local government.

I realize that I need to pare these epistles down somewhat sometimes, and I do oblige the Times Colonist editors when they request such pare-downs from time to time, but I also realize that they have well-paid comfortable jobs at the monopoly daily, and that the CCC is broke, so I often bear that economic reality in mind before sending my longer letters off, hoping said editors will find time away from their online card games, or whatever else they do all day at the huge TC newsroom to distract themselves from actually editing peoples’ letters.

It can’t be that difficult of a job, now, can it?

Nobody pays your humble servant to write such cranky letters attempting to defend the public interest; no political party, no corporations, no union, nobody.

I think that we have to encourage each other, therefor, to wake up, realize we are being abused here, protest in no uncertain terms in letters, long, medium or short in length, to the City of Victoria, to the Provincial Government, to the newspapers, to blogsites and to forums like Puget Sound Radio, etc. 

It is only right and just that a debate be started among the fed-up citizenry of this town, and it would be a simple one:

 AS A REGISTERED VICTORIA VOTER, DO YOU, OR DO YOU NOT,

ACCEPT THE RESULTS OF THE VICTORIA BYELECTION-REFERENDUM

AS ETHICAL, JUST AND LEGALLY BINDING ?

Or, one could rephrase the debate this way:

SHOULD THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT INTEREVENE

TO NULLIFY THE NOVEMBER 20 RESULTS IN VICTORIA,

REFORM LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS REGULATIONS,  

AND ORDER THE CITY OF VICTORIA TO RESCHEDULE IT

TO THE NEXT REGULARLY SCHEDULED ELECTION IN 2011?

Does anyone remember seeing the New Democratic Party’s Mayor of Victoria at any Victoria polling station last Saturday wearing a yellow scarf?

If so, he may very well have infracted Elections B.C. regulations or B. C. government regulations governing Local Government Elections.

Jennah Stavroff, 100.3 FM ‘the Q’ Radio Roving Reporter notices CCC’s Formal Citizens’ Complaint open letter to Premier Campbell, Attorney General de Jong and Communities Minister Stephanie Cadieux: call for Victoria Byelection-Referendum Nullification, rescheduling, Local Government Elections urgent reforms before 2011 @ Puget Sound Radio; Jennah Stavroff tapes phone interview with CCC’s Gregory Hartnell

Jennah Stavroff, Roving Reporter for ‘the Q,’ which bills itself as ‘the Island’s Rock’ station on the FM dial at 100.3, left a message on my answering machine yesterday, after reading about the CCC’s FORMAL COMPLAINT letter sent to Premier Gordon Campbell, Attorney General Michael de Jong, QC, and Communities Minister  Stephanie Cadieux, responsible for Local Government Elections reform.

Ms Stavroff had apparently picked up the story from reading a report written by Michael Easton yesterday at the Puget Sound Radio website entitled ‘Victoria’s Stolen Byelection-Referendum’.

I returned Jennah’s call this morning just after 9:00 a. m.

Her first question was whether the CCC had in fact sent the letter to the Provincial government.

I confirmed that in fact we had done so yesterday.

In fact, the first long CCC Open Letter we sent to the province was published on this CCC-GPMH website the day before, Nov. 24 I believe, and then a shorter introductory letter to that was drafted the following day, November 25, and sent out in an email, providing a very short historical introduction to the ministers, and then links to the longer OPEN LETTER TO THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT article at this same CCC BLOG-GPMH site to help them understand the wider ramifications of the Victoria problem, with links provided for them to JSB.org and FOCUS.org for historical background.

[I know that the website clock recording the time of posting here says otherwise, but in fact I do recall sending the OPEN LETTER out very late November 24 night Victoria time, when the website clock had already flipped to the next day… Ed.’s note.]

Ms Stavroff allowed me to ramble on at some length on the telephone this morning, and I told her at the end of it all that I hoped that she would be able to find a good quote or two for her report.

I had to apologize to her for interrupting her at one point, but basically I answered her next main question with another announcement.

At the time of our morning phone interview today, Friday, November 26, we had not received any letters from the province on our initial CCC CITIZENS’ COMPLAINT against the City of Victoria, and lodged with the senior Provincial Government that regulates the Local Government Act.

I assured Jennah Stavroff, however, that should we not notice any acknowledgement of our letter from any of these ministers by the end of this day, they will then find new email correspondence from us on these urgent matters in their email boxes on Monday morning.

I would like to publicly thank Jennah Stavroff of 100.3 FM for her queries, commend her on her research activities, and hope that she keeps asking all the right sort of questions of Dean Fortin, NDP Mayor of Victoria, and his friends Marianne Alto, Pamela Madoff and Lynn Hunter, all  NDP Councillors of the Victoria City Council.

They need to explain how Marianne Alto can be said to have ‘won’ her seat with only 7.08% of registered Victoria voters’ approval.

Jennah could also ask them how they know for a scientific fact that the 74% of absentee or boycotting registered Victoria voters support the building of a new bridge, as Mayor Dean Fortin so ludicrously now claims?

They simply can’t prove it.
