Conflict of interest controversy dogs NPA’s Bremner in Vancouver by-election

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Municipal politics in Vancouver is pretty swampy as we’ve seen in reports about secretive land swap deals, an entire school board fired after allegations they bullied administrative staff, and now, the front-runner in a council by-election has blatant unaddressed conflicts of interest swirling around him.

Hector Bremner is the NPA's candidate for the council seat left vacant when Geoff Meggs became Premier Horgan's chief of staff.

The NPA is a municipal political party that have wielded power for most of their history since 1937. Now, they’re seeking to win their fourth seat on council to rival the ruling Vision Vancouver's six seats, plus Mayor Robertson.

But troubling inconsistencies in Bremner's record raise serious concerns about conflicts of interest.

Watch as I share the concerns about this former failed 2013 BC Liberal candidate who, according to reporting by the Vancouver Sun, has some powerful forces behind him that helped secure his nomination.

We haven't lost focus on Vision Vancouver, the real swamp dwellers at city hall, but the same forces originally behind Vision’s rise to power, are now aligning behind Bremner and the NPA as they look to take power.

The general election is next year and tapping candidates whose records are underscored by inconsistencies and conflicts of interest is not going to help NPA win and more importantly, serve in the best interests of Vancouver.

With local Vancouver politics, you ask yourself 2 questions; do I like the present Mayor ?, do I want the new Mayor ? Otherwise it is so complicated: you never know if the councilors running are NDP, Communist, Islamist, or can they even speak English. It would be a good guess to assume that they are useless, like most City Councils.
A great example would be in the last Federal election, the Quebec people voted for Ruth Brosseau who went to Los Vegas before the results of the election, thinking she would never win. She had never been in Politics. Her experience was being a waitress in an Ottawa Pub.

Vajay Jay…….it’s ethics……..leftist regressive fucktards lack ethics. The swamp is an excellent name for anything overseen by these leftist parasites. The left is really affirming how a civilized society should not conduct itself.

Serving their people well is referring to the globalist master handlers.. So in fact jay Kelly is right when he says “they serve their people well”.!!

Just out of curiosity Jay Kelly, on what basis do you" have the impression that their municipal politicians serve their people well."??

Do you think that Vancouver’s City Hall, with all those elected councilors who were elected to represent their own areas, were elected to a SWAMP?

It seems like a derogatory term, borrowed from U. S. politics. Overall democracy seems to serve us well. A swamp gives life to so many creatures, and a garden conjures up a more pleasant image.

I do not live in Vancouver, but I have the impression that their municipal politicians serve their people well.

Beware a smiling politician…
Because nobody should be that happy upon being elected knowing how much trouble and work it is going to be to straighten out the shit that was lay down thick by the previously elect and civil servants…. see what I mean.. why would anybody be happy that they got elected worked like dogs to straighten out and clean up somebody else’s mess.!!
Beware smiling politicians.!!
