A bit of background for today’s vote

With the huge amount of vote-splitting in today's Vancouver civic election it would have been very helpful to have ranked ballots!

The civic election was being discussed in its own thread, but what the heck since it is here lets do it here.

Burnaby is going to be interesting, Corrigan looks to be on shaky grounds.

Him and the BCA have had a pretty good run so far. It remains to be seen whether there is close race or not. Bill Copeland was Burnaby's BCA Mayor from 1987 to 2002.

Corrigan has been on Burnaby city council since 1987 and was first elected mayor in 2002. His Burnaby Citizens Association has held all the seats on council since 2008 and a majority on council since 1987.

CBC should provide live TV coverage of Ontario municipal vote results

?

The CBC has decided not to broadcast Ontario’s municipal election results live on television. The elections at the local level in cities and towns throughout Canada’s most populous province take place Monday, Oct. 22. The public broadcaster says it cannot afford the advertising revenue it would lose by pre-empting popular prime-time shows like?Murdoch Mysteries?in its biggest market.

Daniel Bernhard, executive director and spokesperson for Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, is a big supporter of CBC, but does not like this decision one little bit.

“Canadians expect our public broadcaster to behave like a public broadcaster. Private companies put advertisers first. CBC should put citizens first,” he said.

Catherine Tait has only been president of the CBC for a few months, but has had generally good reviews so far. She is a good communicator and can boast she is the only CBC president with a background in hands-on television production.

The decision on election night in Ontario is a major blunder. It is pennywise and pound foolish in the extreme. CBC spokespeople say the corporation will cover the elections on radio and the Internet. That is not the same as what has become the gold standard of election night coverage -- live television.

When one of the most vocal supporters of an organization -- in this case, the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting -- feels the need to publicly chastise it, that organization should worry.

Worse, the politicians in Ottawa who vote on the CBC’s annual budget have taken note.

At a recent Senate committee hearing on the future of broadcasting and telecommunications, the CBC’s clumsy and ill-timed decision was a topic of considerable comment -- none of it kind.

Many politicians in Ottawa are already dubious about the CBC. Some are outrageously ideological and do not think the government should be spending money on a service the private sector can quite adequately provide, in their view. Others are supportive in principle, but often feel frustrated by the public broadcaster. They have historically complained, for instance, that when news happens, private broadcasters send one crew, but the CBC sends four or five. That may be more than a bit unfair, given the CBC operates radio and television networks in two languages.

But politicians have other, less refutable complaints. For instance, a good many are not happy the CBC refused to carry any of the leaders’ debates during the last federal election campaign. There is back-story to that, of course. It dates back to when former prime minister Stephen Harper refused to take part in debates organized, as they had been for decades, by a consortium of broadcasters. Harper accepted invitations from others, including the?Globe and Mail?and the Munk Centre.

There was some justification for the CBC to balk at carrying programing of any kind over which it had no control. However, the other party leaders did take part in the debates and the CBC could have decided the public’s need for information outweighed its own need for control. In Ottawa, politicians have not forgotten what many of them view as an arrogant and heedless decision by the public broadcaster.

The lesson here is that the corporation has to really watch its backside when contemplating moves that might offend the political class.

CBC’s defenders in Parliament try to counter the free enterprise fundamentalists’ arguments by pointing to the unique public service mandate of the corporation. The CBC undercuts those defenders when it decides to so flagrantly abandon its public-service responsibilities in favour of a few dollars of ad revenue.

After a good few months, the choice the corporation made on the election in Toronto, and every other Ontario municipality, now puts the CBC’s new president way behind the 8-ball. It is especially damaging for Tait because her most concrete and prominent commitment upon taking on her new role was to re-invest in local programing, especially local news and public affairs programing.

Whoever advised Tait on this gave her utterly dumb advice. She might consider finding some new advisers, and soon.

One pipeline opponent won and another pipeline opponent lost.?

Although, IMO, their stance on pipeline didnt play a major role in the outcomes, but lets just keep riding this hobby horse.

None, for the first time in more than a generation. Also, almost all the minority candidates (including for mayor) were from centre or right parties, not the lefties COPE and One City.

In New Westminster which is 38.9% visible minority, there was a increase from one visible minority to five out of 14 elected positions (35.7%). Backed by?the New Westminster District Labour Council, CUPE, and the New Westminster NDP, in a riding that has elected a NDP candidate in every election since 1957, except in 2001,??the number of female councillors went from two to three out of seven. On the school board six of the seven elected were women. Visible minority women topped both the councillor and school board polls.?

?

Team Cote, Anita Ansari, Gurveen Dhaliwal, Mary Trentadue, Nadine Nakagawa, Chinu Das

From left, Anita Ansari, Gurveen Dhaliwal, Mary Trentadue, Nadine Nakagawa and Chinu Das celebrate at the Team Cote victory party.

    The faces of New Westminster city council and school board have most decidedly changed.?In an election where “diversity” became a buzzword, and voters and candidates alike started talking about how to get underrepresented people into office, it has happened. ...

    Mayor Jonathan Cote cruised to an easy victory, with 73 per cent of the vote – and every member of Team Cote won a spot on city council and school board.?With those wins came a shift away from the all-white, often male-dominated councils of the past.

    Visible minority candidates have found their way not only into office, but to the top of the polls. And the gender balance has decidedly swung in favour of women – with some younger women included, at that.

    Nadine Nakagawa, a self-described millennial of Japanese descent, finished the night atop the council polls with 7,764 votes, while Anita Ansari, whose family hails from Pakistan, topped the school board race with 6,843 votes.

    Nakagawa will be joined on council by fellow newcomer Chinu Das, who had championed diversity and inclusion throughout the campaign, bringing up the issue at all-candidates meetings when the predominately Caucasian audiences failed to reflect the city’s diverse makeup.?Council also shifted from two women to three, as incumbent Mary Trentadue also won her seat back.?...

    Ansari told the?Record?during the campaign that diversity – or the visible lack thereof in the city’s elected officials - was an important consideration for her in deciding to run in the first place.

    “I have a daughter, and I want her to be able to imagine to be mayor of someplace. Whether she chooses to or not, I want the possibilities to be open for a woman of colour,” she said in an interview pre-election. “I didn’t think about a lot of these things until I had a daughter. You don’t really realize these are the boxes that you view around your reality until you have a little person, and you’re trying to make them grow as big as they can be.”?After her win, Ansari sent her thanks to New West.

    Ansari was joined by Gurveen Dhaliwal, who polled in third place behind fellow newcomer Dee Beattie. ...?

    Dhaliwal said, as a woman of colour, it's particularly important to her to be able to connect with a diverse community - for example, being able to talk to residents in Punjabi about issues such as SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity) education, and help them to feel connected to the school district.?“When I speak to somebody in Punjabi, and I’m able to communicate the complexities of SOGI [sexual identity and gender orientation]?in a language they understand, then they feel connected to the school system and it’s so exciting.”

    So glad to see Corrigan gone.? Burnaby was the worst for dealing with affordable housing in a meaningful way. I remember during my years doing homeless counts that the stories were that Burnaby police would round up homeless and take them over the city limits.? From my limited understanding half of BC council candidates which was overwhelming re-elected wanted him gone.

    But you have to give the BCA credit for totally destroying the right wing in Burnaby.? Such that you can divide the vote between two candidates and the right still cannot make a move.? Also as a general rule, in Burnaby never bet against a fireman.

    Are you setting up an argument that the center-left and left parties in Vancouver are intentionally excluding communities and candidates of color, or simply that they are failing to connect with those communities?? If so, I'd sincerely like to hear your argument or arguments on that.? It's entirely possible that there's a real issue with messaging, tactics, or strategy there.

    I think it’s great that so many women got elected (8 out of 10 for Vacouver’s Council) but our political leaders need to be representative of the entire community which includes more than?50% people of colour as well

    We can do better!
