A Delta resident says the North Delta Area Plan survey has been designed to eliminate any opposition to the municipality’s highrise plans.

North Delta: None of the above

Where are the “oppose” and “strongly oppose” choices? These answers are omitted because they don’t want any opposition to their plans.

Delta council and its well-paid staffers have devised a crafty survey to push through their highrise agenda for North Delta.

The North Delta Area Plan survey has been designed to eliminate any opposition to their ideas. Almost every question on the survey has four answers to choose from: strongly support, support, indifferent, or needs improvement.

So where’s the “oppose” and “strongly oppose” choices? Obviously these answers are omitted because they don’t want any opposition to their plans.

The choice of “needs improvement” is not defined, and even implies that you agree with the idea, but it only needs some slight modification.  There is a “yes” or “no” question to support a 32-storey maximum, but where’s the “yes” or “no” question to highrises in general?

I for one won’t be taking the predetermined survey as it would likely add some validity to their neighbourhood-destroying ideas. It’s a pretty shameful, underhanded tactic if you ask me. Instead of answering “their” survey, I have copied it into a word document and inserted proper choices – “oppose” and “strongly oppose” – to the questions. I will then email “my” survey to the city, where hopefully it won’t end up in file 13.
