Oust Mayor Scott Young

Yesterday I attended a petition signing to oust the Mayor of Port Coquitlam…… Scott Young. The mayor was recently charged with assault after he went to his former girlfriends house…. after getting drunk at a local pub…. and assaulted both her and her new boyfriend. This is not the first time that he has been in trouble with the law. He has on another separate occasion been charged with assault… involving the same ex-girlfriend. She had a restraining order against him….. which he violated.

The mayor has vowed that he would return to his mayoral duties…. and is still planning to attend this Monday’s council meeting.

Saturday at City Hall in Port Coquitlam, a group of residents held a petition signing to try to convince the Mayor that he is not welcome as the Mayor of our city anymore. Why the hell should he be? He committed an offense. I have been a victim of spousal abuse.. and I sure as hell do not approve of a man who does the same…. but is allowed to perform as Mayor of the city. Who the hell does this man think he is? Above everyone else? What sort of example does this set? That you can go ahead and beat a woman… but still secure your place as Mayor?

Every single woman who lives in Port Coquitlam should have taken the one minute out of their day to go down to City Hall to sign that petition…. and I sure as hell hope they did.

    Amazing how everyone is so quick to jump on Scott when he is down. Everyone makes mistakes but he is willing to continue on regardless of all the abuse people are throwing at his. It would be far easiler for him to quit on move one. However Scott is a man and willing to make right what has happened. He should be praised for his efforts.

    I am sorry.. but I don’t think that assaulting a woman (and another person too… for that matter) are actions that the Mayor of a city should be committing. There is no way in hell I will ever “praise” that man “for his efforts.”

    I have seen him around on several different occasions before this incident and I saw nothing but an arrogant egotistical man. And he is proving that he is such by pretending that all of this will just get swept under the rug. It will not. You wait… he will not get voted back in…. if he does not step down.

    “He without sin…Cast the first stone” Brenda Moore! You are orchestrating a witch hunt for Mayor Scott Young and you should find something better to do with your time. Mayor Young is a human being who obviously made bad decisions in his PERSONAL life. He has enough problems that will not affect Brenda the “SBB” (Suburban Busy Body) in any way shape or form. Mayor Young has done a good job as running his city council. If you really want to get someone out of office and destroy them your devilish agenda, go march in front of Premier Gordon Campbells office. I would be more concerned about a politician with a drunk driving record than someone who reacted irrationally in his PERSONAL life.

    I would be more than happy to pay your way to Victoria!

    Do you live in the city of Port Coquitlam? Well I do…. and by living in the city of Port Coquitlam…. and being a voter I have the right to not want a man who beats up women as my Mayor. And that is MY PERSONAL opinion. And I thank you for leaving yours.
