ROBBINS calls on Mayor Scott Young to resign
Oooh Mexico, I never really been there but I'd sure like to go.  Apr 05, 2007

Glen P Robbins, President and CEO of ROBBINS ASK, ROBBINS Sce Research (1998) and ROBBINS MediaWorks is demanding that Port Coquitlam city council take immediate steps to “relieve Mayor Scott Young of his duties until matters pertaining to the criminal charges against him have been entirely dealt with.”
Adds Robbins, “the credibility and confidence of local government cannot be maintained in these circumstances. Mr. Young’s or Mr. Young’s friends and associates position on his guilt or innocence is irrelevant. The fact remains that he has been charged numerous times over the past few weeks and no city can be successfully run under this cloud of suspicion.”
Robbins concludes that Mr. Young’s close friend and political ally Mike Farnsworth (MLA Port Coquitlam-Burke Mountain) is the Solicitor General critic, and “really ought to be putting pressure on his friend the Mayor to step aside, lest the entire region fall into political disrepute, particularly with the recent loss of influence and credibility with Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini and Translink over dubious land purchases on proposed transportation routes. With that in mind, Mr. Farnsworth ought to be pushing for an investigation into these land purchase(s) to determine what information might have been gleaned at Translink meetings, and who else might have been involved. Clearly Mr. Farnsworth needs to understand that public safety and public confidence in the institutions that enable safe cities and communties go hand in hand."
Robbins concludes “the price of political credibility is not cheap, it is difficult to earn, but much easier to lose. The inability to properly respond is a reflection of a lack of sophistication of political actors and brings the entire process everywhere into disrepute."

Commentary
Addendum: Robbins posted this press release at or about 12:15 PM, and released to media at or about 1:15 PM. Constituency representative for Solicitor General Mike Farnsworth's Office, specifically Brad West, revealed to Robbins at or about 1:10 PM that Mike Farnsworth had already sent out a press release calling for the resignation/stepping aside of Port Coquitlam Mayor Scott Young.
