I wish he would have issued a public apology after dragging Hammond down with such an awful accusation. The BC Elections investigation, or whatever it is, will run its course as well but all of that is irrelevant with the public only remembering 'something about Hammond paying off a fugitive,'

From what little I gleaned about him during the election campaign, apologies of this nature are not "Big Mike's" style.

Hammond not only had to deflect the negative light he was cast in by the Helps campaign, he also had to deflect a completely groundless accusation that he was aiding and abetting a fugitive of the law, as Geoghegan put it. Together with Geoghegan's sudden residency within the City of Victoria, despite him having run for Saanich council as a Saanich resident, just lent to the last election being unnecessarily controversial and at times awkward.


Hammond didn’t stand a chance unfortunately. Helps & together Victoria claimed that they ran a clean campaign- but they didn’t. They had their little minions, all closely linked to their campaigns, doing their dirty work on social media. Spreading lies about Hammond etc.

On top of that, new councils social media presence was weak in comparison with the others. The TV campaign was neatly packaged. Even though new council had better candidates- they certainly weren’t showcased well enough

I was just reading that now Isitt thinks the city should bill the military for events such as Remembrance Day. And he made that announcement on the D-Day anniversary.

Isitt and his dog and pony show should be ashamed of themselves. They have totally crossed the line with this stupidity. I swear he is seriously trying to make such a fool of himself that there will be no chance of amalgamating with Saanich as he knows he would have to go and get a proper job.

 

Going to say it...Isitt has zero credibility anymore after this. He's an idiot and a dangerous idiot

 

Where are any of the 14,200 people that voted for this idiot? Stand up and defend him....I frigging dare you

My absolute favourite thing about Sir Ben - he shuts down all of his social media when news breaks that he’s said something stupid -AGAIN. Oh and dodges the media. What’s he going to do when he’s mayor?

His followers will eat this **** up. They have about as much capacity for critical thinking as the MAGA hat wearing troglodytes south of the border.

The only member of Together Victoria to not support the motion was Dubow, then? Or was he not present at the meeting this morning.

...the text of my email to mayor and Council...  mayorandcouncil@victoria.ca

 

 

 

 

I have come to expect this kind of idiocy from Ben Isitt - but the four councillors supprorting this motion should be ashamed!

 

 

The amendment read: "That Council direct staff to engage DND/Veterans Affairs Canada officials to seek to recover costs associated with military events in the City."

"Those entities have substantially greater resources," Isitt told council. "I think responsibility for military commemoration and honouring veterans is more properly the responsibility of those federal agencies."

The motion was carried with the support of councillors Laurel Collins, Sara Potts, Jeremy Loveday and Marianne Alto.

Collins, Potts and Loveday I can see would subscribe to this lunacy...but Alto? Are you sure? Where was Dubow?

I realize we have two conversations going on regarding Isitt’s DND motion. Please use this thread from this point forward in relation to that discussion: https://vibrantvicto...ussion/page-123

Mike Geoghegan said he would make Victoria a better place and by moving all the way to Williams Lake he has fulfilled that promise and we are grateful.


Post of the week for sure.

I have no personal beef with Geoghegan. We probably see eye-to-eye on a lot of issues. But his dirty tricks campaign of unfounded accusations disgust me and we all have a duty to ensure this type of BS stays out of municipal politics.
