These people have lost their minds! Being on council at one time was a "calling" to help and serve the community, it is obvious to me that it's all about "The Money Honey"and screw the people of Port Coquitlam. I know most of this council personally, and an disgusted with the display of greed and selfishness they are proposing on the backs of Port Coquitlam residence who have probably not seem their wages increase, just their Taxes and other mandatory expenses.

Only after the local papers were at press; So Greg Moore I'll call that an Omission, and since It is an Omission I can Call you A LIAR, Just like your friend and mentor Premier Gordon Campbell, you manipulative little prick.

The mayor defended the timing of the announcement, stating the city is being "proactive to even put across a press release."

Well now we know where the money saved from cutting our garbage service in half is going.

I like how the mayor "pretends" that he is thinking of the best interests of the PoCo residents such as asking our input on the 2010 budget and ideas on how to save money. Gee, didn't see this big raise in there.

As well the mayor has blogged on the "Mayor's Blog" how he rides his bike everywhere including to and from meetings and work on his new motorized bike and yet this article states, "Also proposed is the addition of a transportation allowance for the mayor, valued at $5,723 annually." What's this about? Can we say hypocrite?
