David Eby: Official loser.

By samanthaorwell on September 21, 2008 - 3:23am

For full post:

But alas, Vision Vancouver failed to nominate David Eby.
Who woulda thunk it? I thought David Eby was a shoe in. Who can resist that freakishly tall man with a soft-spot for housing social justice?
I certainly can't, especially when he offers to come to my house to talk himself up. No, that was not meant to sound condescending at all. I really was pushing for David.

I don't get it. What happened? To my knowledge, the only thing that David Eby could have done wrong is run a strong slate for housing and homeless issues. *gasp* may I maybe infer that Vision Vancouver's membership is too moderate to push a candidate like Eby through?

Now dare I ask Mr. Eby to run with COPE?
No, Dave really does lose face if he attempts to put together his fallen [short lived] political career.
Go back to Pivot, Eby. If they will let you back in.

Now to everybody, why did he lose?

a) Moderate Vision Vancouver voters (Vision as a "progressive centre left" is a myth)
b) There were just too many other great candidates ahead of him (or ones more closely tied socially/politically/historically to the Vision campaign)
c) Distaste for the housing/homelessness slate
d) Inexperienced in politics
e) Freakishly tall
f) All of the above
g) Some of the above
h) Choose your own adventure.

Remember Project Civil City- the best homeless hating document created? It's been a long time since it has poked it's ugly little head out. Sam Sullivan is bringing it back. with a vengeance. and if you ask me, it's just to take your eye off of the failure that is EcoDensity (*ahem* Brent Toderian saying that a completely new draft is needed and ALL the actions require change).
