We couldn’t have said it better ourselves…

We all know there’s something missing these days at City Hall, Park Board and School Board. It’s called accountability and common sense.

! make rapid transit along Broadway and the downtown streetcar Vancouver’s transportation priorities;

“Anton is also right about her claim for overall numbers of homeless growing in the past three years.”

Whether it’s backyard chickens, taxpayer-funded wheat fields, millions spent on wacky and costly “greenwashing” gimmicks, or the lack of planning and leadership around the Stanley Cup riot and tent city on the lawn of the Vancouver Art Gallery, it’s definitely time for a change.

! put a moratorium on new downtown separated bike lanes;

“The current Board of Trustees has not demonstrated they have the management capacity to effectively govern the Vancouver School Board or fulfill all of their accountabilities and duties…”

On November 19th vote NPA to:

! support community centres, recreation facilities and more childcare; ! make it easier to do business in Vancouver and stop exporting jobs to other communities;

! put taxpayers and neighbourhoods first;

! have a Mayor who says “the buck stops with me” and demonstrates real leadership;

! cut red tape to increase housing supply and improve affordability;

! give St. Paul’s Hospital the zoning and height it needs to stay downtown.

! cap City Hall spending and return surpluses to taxpayers; ! support construction of new South Vancouver Seniors Centre and property tax relief for Vancouver Legions;

On November 19th, join your NPA candidates and bring back common sense, the kind that builds a better Vancouver for everyone.

—Independent review of Vision Vancouver’s School Board by BC’s Comptroller General

“But a new poll suggest many taxpayers are waking up to the fact that there’s not much in the mayor’s policies for homeowners, whose taxes are increasingly viewed by Vision as a way to fund their own special little projects for political supporters rather than to provide efficient city services that taxpayers actually want.” — The Province Newspaper, October, 2011

“…the first step is to have dedicated bike lanes, without cars on them, all over the city…” —Gregor Robertson, 2008 Vision Vancouver nomination campaign

Suzanne Anton NPA Candidate for Mayor

“Business growth in Vancouver stalls while suburbs flourish. Vancouver… added just 46 new businesses. Meanwhile, the number of business licences in Metro Vancouver increased… 230 times faster than in the city of Vancouver. Surrey alone recorded a net gain of 5,571 new licences, and Langley Township 4,268.” —The Vancouver Sun, October, 2011

“We have not produced a solution to the housing crisis...” —Vision Vancouver Councillor Geoff Meggs, July 2011

“Mayor Gregor Robertson declared the City of Vancouver a “fantastic place to do business” in a Vancouver Economic Commission promotional video. But the organic juice company he co-founded and owns shares in and whose product labels bear his signature migrated to the suburbs a year after the Winter Olympics.” —The Vancouver Sun, October, 2011

“I didn’t know any details.” — Gregor Robertson on security planning for Stanley Cup Finals, June 2011

“I could care less frankly about a police car going up in flames.” —Vision Vancouver Councillor Geoff Meggs, on the Stanley Cup riot, June 2011

“The mayor’s incompetent decision to invite what became an estimated 150,000 people to party in the streets without taking serious interest in how it would be policed was itself an act of petty politics.” — The Province Newspaper, July 2011

“Gregor Robertson’s bumbling response to the illegal ‘Occupy Vancouver’ tent city is yet another example that shows he doesn’t have enough judgement or common sense to be mayor… citizens deserve better. They deserve leadership.” — The Province Newspaper, October, 2011

“Two years into this administration and unhappy employees continue to bail out of city hall… All part, I suspect, of Vision’s unprecedented gag orders being placed on the public service at city hall.” —Allen Garr, Vancouver Courier
