What about paramountcy?

Re: Public hearings, old normal

It's back to business as usual for public hearings in Kelowna, Castanet, July 27, 2020, I notice there is no mention of paramountcy.
 
We learn that Mayor Basran liked the change under paramountcy, and wanted it to continue. He sees no problem with altering democracy short-term or long-term. 
 
No surprise, a faster track for injecting "wet" supportive housing into residential neighbourhoods, and other pesky issues that the public might choose to oppose.
 
Kelowna deserves better. Electors that won't kowtow to a provincial government that ignores democracy with misuse of paramountcy, and public interest immunity.
