This episode was recorded before the hate-fuelled killing of a four members of a Muslim family in London, Ontario. We added a short pre-amble in light of that horrific event.
Our guest this week is Graham Crawford, one of the leads and spokespeople of iElectHamilton.ca, which was launched two weeks ago. In two short weeks, iElectHamilton.ca has provoked a wave of positive support from many Hamiltonians, and a storm of angry reaction from some of the city’s political grandees. It has already been described as a leftist takeover by university elites, and for being unfairly hostile to delicate incumbent councillors who just want everybody to be positive.
We enjoyed speaking to Graham so much we ended up recording enough to fill two episodes. So, we’re going to fill two episodes. Here’s part 1.
