Silly season is coming up fast and with the retirements of both sitting mayors, election talk is heating up.

The NVCAA is going to focus on encouraging new voices to step forward and run for Council in the City of North Vancouver. Our next meeting will focus on that effort.

Two potential Council candidates tried their hand at speaking to City Council on Monday. Their presentation can be found in the Tax and Finance sub-page under the 'Issues' tab - or at this link.

  • Thanks for the honest and sincere input. The very best thing about all those I’ve met thus far involved at this point is the community input, some call it “engagement” which is our ultimate goal/purpose. Having done much volunteer work with CNV in the last decade plus, I am most excited about engaging the community in “what they want”. Let’s start there and build the rest around it. This has nothing to do with developers or special interest groups, it’s about where / how we want to live/work and our mutual ability to participate in that process.
  • Will a more defined platform be communicated? Point 2 above makes me question what “the best interests of the community” are. We are a very diverse community. Is this group solely devoted to anti-development? What about cyclists vs cars vs public transit; owners vs renters; low vs higher income etc. I definitely want to know a lot more information before I can say I support this group.
  • good to hear, the local politicians should represent the local issues and benefit those who live here. Number 1, density, I no longer can leave my driveway without two cars obstructing the view, parked right at my driveway. Number 2, the car2go project is a failure. None of my neighbors sold their cars, those who live in our rented basements used to take the public transportation, now they switched to the car2go ultimately adding 5-6 cars to the streets and empty buses. Number 3, local taxes, why do we pay taxes based on how beautiful our house looks like? They should be based on the number of occupants in the house. Each person adds to the garbage collection, water usage, sewer usage, pavement usage, bus usage, school usage. The taxes are meant to maintain the local services based on its usage, not based on the beauty of the house. Just those 3 to start with. thx.
  • I am ecstatic to hear this and hope to learn much much more. Will also endeavour to attend an upcoming meeting!
