We have heard lots of great questions, but few answers.
Why not ask Mayor Baldwin why, when it looked like the Vidal Street 12-Story Mega-Condo was going to fail the vote, why did Mayor Baldwin delay the vote until the next meeting so Grant Meyer could be there to ensure the vote passed? If Mayor Baldwin was so against the Cressey Mega-Condo development on Vidal as he claims, why did he delay the vote when he could have ensured that it failed? Remember, he claimed to be against the Vidal Street Mega-Condo!
Do not be fooled by political spin, Actions speak louder than words.
Be sure to ask Mayor Baldwin why he did not mention Densification as part of his platform in the Peace Arch News? He has been working hard to increase White Rock density for years. Why not mention it?
Why avoid this topic? Does he not want to tell residents that he strongly believes in more densification whether we like it or not? Is this missing from his message because he knows that it is unpopular with residents?
And ask him why he is increasing densification when it clearly raises our taxes and makes our city less livable by increasing congestion, wait times at the hospital, waitlists in our schools, and more police costs all the while many of these condos remain empty?
Perhaps there are reasonable answers to all these questions. If so, we would like to hear them. Perhaps we will get answers tonight, but do not be surprised if these questions do not come up. The questions are being filtered by the White Rock Business Improvement Association and South Surrey/White Rock Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board.
It is your city by the sea, not Mayor Wayne “the Boss” Baldwin’s and not the White Rock Six’s Pro-Development Coalition.
