On July 8, 2010, Vancouver City Council heard from several public speakers concerned about Mayor Gregor Robertson's motion to create a West End Community Advisory Committee in response to problematic spot rezonings and the controversial short term incentives for rental program (STIR) that gives incentives to developers at the cost to the community in exchange for building top dollar market rental housing.

After Council adjourned, the cameras and mics had shut off. But then the mic near the mayor came back on and he can be overheard along with other Vision Vancouver Councillors, mocking and ranting about members of the public who came to speak.

To see the original council meeting video stream (albeit edited to remove the Mayor's offensive comments), go to:
