COUNCIL MEETING

It was a very good one.
Party line distinguished the moment.
Transportation was the topic.
Councilman Rankin made us believe city was boycotting the province.
Councilman Volkow responded with heart and soul.
He, for the first time, impressed me.
But it was the Mayor gave the best closing.
I was convinced mass transit is better than highway.
My Taipei transit experience has much to do with the conclusion.

But after a night’s sleep, I suddenly realize.
This is a different situation.
The key is population.
Taipei has the number and density.
Mass transportation saves.
But we are too big in Greater Van.

We are not New York not even LA.
One is big apple.
And the other is land of opportunity.
Both are not on the livable city list.

But people can’t wait to get there.
Same can be said on businessmen rushing to China.
That is where you have chance to be the best.

Still, I have to say.
Thank you, Mayor Corrigan.
You did make a clear picture to us.
The provincial government is not transparent.
And they are not accountable.

But it also shows.
We do need independent voice more than ever.
Council Bagin missed his golden opportunity.

He certainly is not the voice for people voted him in.
And he is not anchoring any independent quality.
What a waste it is for the seat.

Oh, by the way, Steve Nash did a great job to be interviewed by Charlie Rose.
He truly is making us proud.

And it is Chinese Halloween month now.
It is not fun and game.
It truly is holiday for all dead.
