Burlington is in a pickle. Recently the Ontario Land Tribunal ruled in favour of developers at Lakeshore and Pearl to increase their height to 29 stories. Over the objection of council and citizens. This sparked a public statement from the Mayor. Joel and Roland analyze the situation that the city is in and what options they really have.
Then it appears that the Halton Catholic School Board can’t keep its bad news out of the press. This time a well-intentioned webinar for parents of black students was cancelled. Instead of looking at how to better educate students on anti-racism measures, the board appeared to be telling black students how to deal with it. Joel and Roland look at what’s going on and how the board keeps finding itself in these situations.
