HUGH KRUZEL LIVES ON PANDORA AVENUE WITH HIS FAMILY:

A RESIDENT VICTORIAN, HE WANTS TO IMPROVE HIS NEIGHBOURHOOD.

BOTH MR. KRUZEL AND SUSAN WOODS  WILL VOTE ‘NO’

FAIRFIELD RESIDENT CANDIDATE SUSAN WOODS  

SHARES BRIDGE COST CONCERNS WITH HUGH KRUZEL

BOTH OPPOSE NEEDLE EXCHANGES.


 IN THE VICTORIA REFERENDUM, NOVEMBER 20, 2010,

SEVEN OUT OF NINE ‘NO’ CANDIDATES SUPPORT THE STATUS QUO

OF PAYING LIP SERVICE TO FAILED ENABLING POLICY.

HERE BELOW ONE CAN FIND THEIR PHOTOS

 George Sirk, Steve Filipovic, Rose Henry, Paul Brown, Barry Hobbis, Pedro Mora

 

and Saul Andersen are also in the NO camp with Hugh Kruzel and Susan Woods,

but the unity of the group ends there.

SAANICH RESIDENT BARRY HOBBIS GIVES VICTORIA PEOPLE GOOD ADVICE HE CAN’T ACT UPON:

VOTE ‘NO’ TO $49,200,000 JOHNSON STREET BRIDGE LOAN

MR. HOBBIS IS PROHIBITED FROM VOTING IN THE VICTORIA REFERENDUM,

BUT HE SAYS ‘YES’ TO THE IDEA OF ‘A FIXED NEEDLE EXCHANGE’!

ROSE HENRY: LIKE MR. HOBBIS, SHE SAYS ‘NO’ TO $49,200,000 LOAN, BUT…

ROSE HENRY ALSO SAYS ‘YES’ TO MORE NEEDLES FOR ACTIVE ADDICTS!

Steve Filipovic

STEVE FILIPOVIC: PASSIONATE FOR TENT CITIES,

FANATIC ‘HARM REDUCTIONIST’ WASN’T ENDORSED BY QUITTER SONYA CHANDLER,

INSTEAD, EX-GREEN COUNCILLOR STUDENT PLUGGED HENRY, ANDERSEN, ALTO FROM BILBAO.

IS FILIPOVIC REALLY ‘GREEN PARTY OF VICTORIA’ CANDIDATE?

Paul Brown

PAUL BROWN: DESPITE THINKING JOHNSON STREET BRIDGE SHOULD BE REPLACED,

‘FISCAL PRUDENCE’ TELLS HIM TO VOTE “NO!”

LIBERAL ON SOCIAL ISSUES, I BELIEVE HE WANTS MORE NEEDLES…

SAANICH RESIDENT ‘BUSINESSPERSON’ ALTO:

Doesn’t think she needs to pay for a Saanich business licence!

ENCOURAGES VICTORIANS TO VOTE ‘YES”

BUT CAN NOT VOTE IN THE VICTORIA REFERENDUM

NEITHER OF THESE ‘YES’ CANDIDATES SHOULD BE SUPPORTED

BECAUSE THEY WOULD ALSO EXPAND SO-CALLED ‘HARM REDUCTION SERVICES’

In the days leading up to this Saturday’s (Nov. 20) City of Victoria byelection, Candidates are vying for attention with some unique strategies.

Barry Hobbis, who placed 14th in the 2008 civic election, is running a sophisticated campaign.

Last week he mediated Victoria’s first Telephone Town Hall.

Through an automated calling system, Hobbis called 20,000 homes in Victoria, reaching nearly 5,000 for at least part of the hour-long discussion.

Like many of the candidates, Hobbis criticized the City’s handling of the Johnson Street Bridge replacement project at an all-candidates’ meeting in Vic West on Sunday.

“The blue bridge is the best example of the difference between community engagement and public relations,” Hobbis, a Saanich resident who does business in Victoria, said.

The platforms of three other candidates – Hugh Kruzel, George Sirk and Steve Filipovic  – push for a NO vote in the bridge referendum, held in conjunction with the byelection to replace former Councillor Sonya Chandler.

All three men favour a lower-cost bridge refurbishment plan than the replacement project supported by City Council.

All were stumped Sunday when asked what their role would be on Council should the public vote YES in the referendum.

Candidate Marianne Alto distinguished herself as favouring City Council’s plan to borrow up to $49,200,000 to replace the bridge.

She called for a regional transit authority to move rapid transit forward.

Candidate Paul Brown agreed the bridge probably needs to be replaced.

Citing fiscal prudence, however, he said the City of Victoria needs to explore lower cost replacement.

Rose Henry represents the unlikely candidate with proven potential.

Formerly homeless, she brings a strident voice to the debate.

If elected, she would be the first Coast Salish Councillor.

In the 2008 election, she beat Hobbis, placing 10th.

Susan Woods presented a view out of step with Council’s support for harm reduction services.

“I am opposed to needle exchanges and the distribution of drug paraphernalia,” she said.
