In our Thursday 905 Round-up this week we have three stories that have dominated news cycles in different parts of the 905, in some cases for almost a decade. Two will be viewed as positive steps, and one seems entirely negative. Judge for yourselves.
- Trustees at Halton Catholic and Hamilton Wentworth Public School Boards are in a hole and determined to keep digging.
- Hamilton councillors vote at committee to proceed with LRT. But can the anti-LRT/Stoney Creek alliance delay and disrupt the process so much that they can still refuse to accept a free transit system?
- Burlington has received provincial permission to adjust the location of its Urban Growth Centre, which Mayor Meed Ward portrays as taking control of development in the city after a controversial decade and more since the UGC was put in place. Roland and Joel take different views on whether this is a big deal, a ‘positive, but time will tell’ deal, or a whole lot of nothing very much. Listen to the end to see who you agree with!
