Hidden camera footage obtained by the Vancouver Observer has revealed Mayor Gregor Robertson's dream of making Vancouver the world's “greenest city” are in fact clandestine plans to enforce his Scottish heritage upon the city.
Caught on tape meeting with fellow City Council Scots Caucus member Adriane Carr (Green Party representative of north Scotland's Clan Kerr), Carr and Robertson are seen discussing whether fellow councillor Heather Deal (Vision Vancouver) -- descendent of the Irish family Dale -- might be drawn into an alliance.
“Robbie,” Carr is heard on the tape saying to the mayor – referring to Robertson by his Scottish nickname, “If William Wallace succeeded in bringing Scots and Irish together, we can too.
“We've endured the yoke of British rule too long now, aye.”
