GREGORY HARTNELL CONDEMNS VANDALISM AT FORTIN RESIDENCE: CCC President deplores perverse counterproductive violence of vandals + Victoria Police’s rogue cops

THE MAYOR IN HAPPIER TIMES

 

I condemn the mindless vandalism that was discovered by the Mayor of Victoria on his Fortin family property this morning.

While I have been an unrelenting critic of this mayor’s heartless, strange and materialistic bridge-building mania, I deplore without reservation the crude vandalism and brutish violence of the cowards responsible for the senseless damage found by Mr. Fortin.

The ‘agenda’ of the vandals that struck at the Fortin family residence is not that of the poor, but rather that of common hoodlums, and will merely encourage the bad behaviour of the rogue cops that plague the Victoria Police Department.

Obviously, these vandals are too stupid to figure that out, and should these rogue cops play rough with them, they will have no one but themselves to blame.

I am not advocating a heavy-handed police reaction, obviously, just predicting that it will be difficult for these rogue cops to resist coming down heavy on all of the more troublesome of the homeless, and not just those few anti-social misfits who are responsible for this outrage.

Recently a report found that the ‘VicPD’, as the police department now styles itself, needed to improve its constables’ service behaviour in no less than 80 ways.

Until that has been done, Tasers banned, and improved, law-abiding, more compassionate policing behaviour is monitored, tested and become standard procedure over a couple of years, the Mayor and Council and the Victoria Police Board should not authorize any more pay raises for these police union members.

A hiring freeze should also be put on the Victoria Police Department pending a rigorous assessment of the new regime.

The Police Chief should reassure Victorians that this obscure but small group is under investigation, that they do not represent the vast majority of law-abiding poor and homeless, rather they only represent a tiny minority of disgruntled so-called ‘militant’ anarchists who have no respect for private property or the sensibilities of the family in question.

They should arrest and charge these people with the full force of the law.

There is no real justification for this vandalism, of course, but it can be compared to the idiotic WTC 911 bombing in that it was precipitated by reckless government policies.

MAYOR FORTIN WITH MAYOR FANGFANG, A MEMBER OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF CHINA

Canada's first VIP visitor, Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin, visits the Canada Pavilion with Commissioner General Mark H. Rowswell in April 2010.

Dean Fortin in Shanghai in April of this year, the first Canadian VIP, according to federal goverment propadanda, to visit the Canada Pavilion at Expo 2010, with a federal government bureaucrat. Will federal stimulus money for the Johnson Street Bridge end up in the pockets of Chinese Communist Party businessmen?

By immediately giving themselves outrageous raises as the first order of business after being elected, by taking expensive, useless, scandalous trips to Communist China every year, by insisting that the heritage bridge will be torn down, NDP Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin and Victoria City Council have forgotten about their original mandate, given to them by the people who voted for them, to solve the homelessness problem in Victoria.

In their mad dash to tear down and build a new bridge on Johnson and Wharf, they have left hundreds of poor people in precarious conditions on the streets of downtown Victoria, thus actually endangering their lives.

This is the stark reality Victorians need to admit before they recklessly endorse borrowing almost $50,000,000 to tear down our heritage Joseph Strauss-designed bascule bridge, and build a new bridge to replace it, all the while ignoring or delaying responding properly to the beggars that litter our sidewalks now.

Victorians should not vote for the Mayor’s heartless agenda in the upcoming referendum, nor should we vote for the mayor’s favoured NDP candidate.

A vote for Marianne Alto would be a vote for Dean Fortin’s materialistic agenda of an expensive foreign-designed bridge, unnecessary concrete sidewalks and cosmetic curbs before actual poor people in real need.

A vote for Marianne Alto would actually reduce social housing and addiction treatment programmes for the poor, because there will only be  a severely limited amount of money allocated for those problems when they are deprioritized, and the rest will be squandered on a new bridge that is not really needed.

Therefor, to help our homeless by prioritizing social housing, to reallocate tax dollars for job training and treatment programmes for those in recovery, and to save the Johnson Street Bridge, I recommend that we reject the borrowing proposed by Dean Fortin to build a new bridge, and that Victorians vote NO in the referendum.

 Instead of the same old tired partisan ideas peddled by the NDP candidate, we should also support positive change by voting for Barry Hobbis in the byelection, the independent moderate and fiscally cautious candidate who is best qualified to be our next Victoria City Councillor.

Mat Wright, campaign manager for Barry Hobbis, posted this message to the Barry Hobbis campaign website:

 

VANDALISM IS NOT PART OF THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS

Vandalism and intimidation have no place in the democratic process.

While feelings are running high on certain issues our City faces, it is only through informed debate they can be resolved.

 

VOTE NO TO BORROW $49M TO REPLACE THIS HERITAGE BASCULE BRIDGE

 

‘NO MEANS NO’ + VOTE BARRY HOBBIS = REAL CHANGE FOR VICTORIA
