Massive Investigation of Zimmerman's Pay-to-Play Smart Growth Cronies in Montreal Continues

Hi Yupette,

Latest from Montreal is that the massive pay-to-play investigation of the "Smart Growth" construction and development industry is leading to the actual and imminent arrests of hundreds of local officials in Montreal and its suburbs, including Chris Zimmerman's consulting clients and Smart Growth cronies.

Latest arrest is of the Acting Mayor of Montreal, Michael Applebaum, a Smart Growth real estate developer. It appears the corruption is so pervasive in the Greater Montreal Smart Growth real estate and development sectors that concerned citizens are asking the Province of Quebec to take over Montreal's city council.

Later,

Larry from Ontario

Zimmy was asked who his current consulting clients are at the last County Board meeting.

Now c'mon. Just because the CB used closeout funds from FY 12 to bail out the Signature while delaying street paving until the start of FY 14 because of 'fiscal constraints' doesn't make Arlington another Montreal.

Quebec scandals all appear to involve Smart Growth or big public infrastructure projects.

Whomever Zimmy's consulting clients are they are nickel and dime compared to Jay's domestic partner's.

Difference between Quebec and Arlington is that federal and state law enforcement inside the Beltway tolerate pay to play payoffs until pay to play gets completely outrageous, e.g., D.C. City Council.

Smart Growth and Pay to Play are synonyms.

Yes. Michael Applebaum is a slick politrickster like Zimmy who thought he was immune. But Quebec apparently has fully functional law enforcement.

Obviously the Quebec police are not (yet) committed to the Yuptard 'vision' for Montreal as Canada's Club Hedo.

Club Hedo? Go to arlingtonva.us, then County Government, then Board Meetings, then 2013 Regular and Recessed Meetings, then on June 18 Recessed Meeting, then click on Video, then watch Agenda Item 31 aka A-Town Antics.

What is going on here....Smart Growth as an international crime enterprise?

Arlington's Chief of Police attended the County Board meeting last night and witnessed the A-town antics.

Smart Growth 401 - Advanced Pay to Play Practicum, 6 credits

This is an international exchange program for elected Smart Growth facilitators focused on advanced pay to play techniques. Elected officials from jurisdictions with mature Smart Growth redevelopment organizations will visit countries where Smart Growth redevelopment is commencing to present an overview of advanced pay to play techniques. This will be followed by exchange visits to mature Smart Growth jurisdictions for consultations with planners, developers, law firms, and local political facilitators to determine the best techniques for implementing pay to play in areas under consideration for redevelopment.

Professor Z., What's the preferred mode of delivery for 'gratuities' from RIETs and Developers to elected officials in the D.C. Metro area?

Professor Z., How do we configure the "community benefits" so they only benefit the REIT that owns the building under development?
