...I agree that even for her supporters, Lisa jumped the shark on this one.

Do you think for even a moment her supporters will care?

The mayor said. in her article    SFH in Victoria – has racist, exclusionary roots.  I agree with this statement.  A tree has many roots  and I am not saying that this is the only reason for SFH creation or the reason to change zoning regulations.

 

There were historically racist exclusionary elements in housing including SFH in BC and Victoria as is clearly indicated above. That is the point that I want to acknowledge. 

 

I will say it again that in my opinion mayors overall statement was a step too far.

If we want to dig deep enough, we’ll also have to scrap ever using the E&N Railway again, because train routes built in BC used Chinese labour in an expendable, and arguably racist way. Racism connected Canada, in other words.

Anyways, we've all made our points. The mayor is in the wrong and why she feels she has to double down is anyone’s guess.

Because Her Worseship is incapable of ever admitting she is wrong. Doubling down has been her modus operandi from day one.
