Ottawa homeowners … the value of your dwelling is under attack.
That’s because after the height and zoning report travesty of democracy and the hideous lack of process on 900 Albert, the zoning that protects your dwelling from high-rises and other forms of development doesn’t mean diddly squat.
Your councillors and city staff don’t adhere to zoning anymore. If a builder is big enough and wants to build big enough, your community design plan and area zoning won’t defend you. Mayor Jim Watson, Barrhaven councillor and planning committee chairwoman Jan Harder and the city’s planning department don’t give a damn about your home and its value. They give a damn about their campaign contributors and big development charges.
The Oct. 22 election is coming. Band together to save your property value, usually a big part of your life savings. Don’t let Harder, Watson and the planning department put your retirement and children’s education in jeopardy
Get rid of Watson, Harder and the Bobblehead councillors who won’t defend you. Ask your ward candidates if they will stand up for your home and your family. If they won’t, turf them. Elect people who will support you, not themselves.
Democracy matters. Your home matters. Your children’s education matters. Your retirement matters. Elect people who will defend all those things, not this crew of self-serving politicians and bureaucrats.
