Even during my hey days on council (when I was shaking things up with the establishment) do I ever recall such universal hate and resentment by residents with their mayor and council.. and where they are taking us.
In my opinion, what is transpiring here is a classic case of Class Warfare. The elites here want to continue running things for them and their kind. They want regression bordering on depression (but not for them and their kind, who already are, or will soon be, receiving some form of lucrative government pension i.e. teachers, police, politicians, bureaucrats, etc., etc. (something the Pass has an unusual abundance of i.e. former public servants).
They want things to remain as is, along the lines of what we have had, and still are i.e. backwards. Progress disturbs their thing. Such as, Thunder in the Valley. Too much success, noise and bad elements for these people. This small group, with more of their kind on council doing their bidding, has to-date successfully run ram-shod over the majority in this community. In fact, over the vast majority of people here and in Southern Alberta/B.C. They have decided for us that it is just to bad, we can learn to do without. So sad, too bad, but like it or not, that is how things go here i.e. the 1% rule and the rest of us suck it up.
But this time I think the establishment got it all wrong and went to far. When compared to my Council/Ratepayer days, I see a marked difference between then and now. The biggest difference is the 99% are united as one in their collective condemnation, and are saying 'enough is enough'.
But alas, it appears as though mayor and council still do not get the message, being still in a state of denial.
What's it going to take to both wake them up, and smarten them up?
Meanwhile in the valley, we are being asked to be less negative and more positive. Pretty hard to be positive when so much negative things are happening all around you, almost daily. With so much selfishness being perpetrated by the elite in a community starving for more, having had so little for so long under the former mayor and now what little we had is being taken away from us, the present council's request makes me think of the following quote...
They are all masters at pissing on our leg, and then while smiling, tell us "it must be raining!"
Make Shit Happen: Mobilizing the Power of the People is what I hear out there loud and clear. Soon the roar I suspect will be so loud that even mayor and council will literally be blown away by it. For tyranny here has ruled for far too long and the people are not going to take it anymore with this new bunch. 'Freedom' is no longer just a word anymore for the residents here, for 'Police State' is now in our vocabulary. Considering they now are already calling the shots as to what we can and cannot do, such as no more TITV!!
p.s. Most of you can sit on your ass and do nothing, not even comment, but as it has been said "you cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today".
The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
